A downloadable short story
Tidal Forces is a short work of environmental fiction that invites the reader to consider nature as a force with intention.
I can’t put a name to the colour of this water. Chartreuse? Too florid. But simply green is not expressive enough, turquoise not pale enough. It’s no more than a foot of water glinting over suntanned sand, a weak mirror for the cloudless sky. Even higher up the bank, the water is glassy; tufts of grass grow from the sand, fringed by thistles and small purple wildflowers, twigs float towards the lake — which is blue, as open water should be.
