A Game of Chess

Tough one this week!  Well, here is my attempt for the week.  Very different from what I normally write.

Silence was broken by the hoot of Mr. Owl

echoing throughout the swamp.

Sitting majestically above.

Watching movement below.

Mr. Snake slithers cautiously beneath the leaves.

Avoiding becoming the meal.

Nature’s chess match.

This fiction was written for Trifextra: Week Sixty-seven.

This weekend we want you to give us 33 words (exactly) that include among them at least one example of onomatopoeia.  When looking for a good page to link to in order to help describe the device, we stumbled upon our very own Apoplectic Apostrophes‘ post on literary devices.  Check it out if you need help remembering how onomatopoeia work.
