Write a story set in an eco-friendly future.
The air was crisp and clean. A breeze played over her face. She sighed, content
If anyone were to tell her this place was all artifice, a manufactured facsimile of a world now lost, she wouldn’t believe them.
Tell me how this sky, these trees, this landscape is not real. It was the only reality she had ever known
Earth, the old earth, long since stripped bare and destroyed. Ancient history, no lo...
The streets were a lime green color, tall buildings with rooftoop gardens and lots of glass. People stroll around wearing recycled clothing. Cars run on plant based fuel. The city is pretty much perfect. No crime and no enemies. The government is fair and good. The only flaw is that no one can leave. And that was fine. Until one unfortunate day…...
I am a gardener.
Now you people of the past are going to think that is the stupidest thing ever. And it was.
But now we gardeners are the highest of the high, at the same level as the city officials.
They take care of the people and we take care of the environment.
Now I guess we can’t take all the credit. You would be surprised what community work can do. And all of the fresh air. The ...
I’m Eli I had a dream. The place was so green and It had tall glorious towers and they all had domes
It was hopeful and beautiful. There was solar panels everywhere. There were encouraging signs everywhere. There was grass and trees implants everywhere you could look. It’s a disappointment that none of this will ever happen. ￼
Eli tried to re-create this. He spent billions and trillions of dolla...
Ever since the ecoism movement, cities were so quiet. The bustle of cars halted to the fainter footfalls of pedestrians. The hum of generators and crashes of cranes non-existing. And in the sounds that did exist the calls of pedestrians, the melodies leaking out from doors - the stream of trees and brush atop the buildings and through streets absorbed this noise, creating a damp loom over the worl...
(Just the picture not the description)
“So,” I murmur, a silent breath right behind me, “What do you want Rai?”
“Wow, such a kind greeting,” He chuckles, now standing beside me after a few faltered steps.
“You got in a fight, didn’t you?” I sigh, shaking my head as he grunts in reply. I unbuckle my side sheath, pushing with my finger to reveal the shiny blade.
He steps a bit closer, m...
The white egg shaped transport pod comes to a halt in front of Demi, the shiny glass front smoothly opens upward with a satisfying his of the hydrolic pistons. A friendly A.I. voice of CAM invites her to take a seat in one of comfortable looking chairs facing each other, two on each side. The door closes.
Demi drops in to one of the front facing chairs. The voice asks where she would like to go.

My city has a ten-year plan
Hoping to “go green” as they say
They lay out these grandiose ideas
Of how a decade will change our lives
Buildings draped in greenery,
Rooftop gardens and solar-powered cars
Recycling centers on every block
That spend days churning old plastic
Into reusable shopping bags.
They sell it as an ideal utopia
Carbon footprints chopped in half
People investing in greenhou...
The year is 2123. Becca is excited to get the job of indoor mushroom farmer. It means being inside in climate-controlled buildings and she doesn’t need to don a sun suit to prevent sunburn from going outside. While the city’s shields block some of the UV rays and heat, it isn’t safe to go outdoors without protection for more than a minute or two at a time. Yes, the job will be in the dark, but Be...
