“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”-Henry David Thoureau

So this week I decided to try a ride with the Friday Fictioneers! You can find out more about them by going to

Here is my 100 word story!

The Hyangadi Tide

I watched as the Hyangadi Tide made its way across the Dead Mountains. . This thick band of mist that spanned the poles of our desert planet had come again as it had every two months since we had arrived here twenty years ago.

            My frown deepened until I could feel it scratch the dry cracked corners of my mouth.

The moisture gatherer at my side,our only salvation, sat quiet like the rest of the sleeping village below.  I pressed the ignition once more. Nothing.

We were all in God’s hands now.

  1. Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, the addiction that keeps on addicting. At least it’s a good one as is your story. In fact, I’m off to have some tea. My mouth’s rather dry for some reason. 🙂


  2. Reminds me of the plants in Namibia that collect the moisture from fog that rolls across the dunes from the sea. I really enjoy good sci fi flash fiction – and yours is great! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Dear Joe,

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. It can be a bumpy ride sometimes but one that you’ll want to come back for again and again. An intriguing story to begin with.
