The sky growled thunder, spit lightning, and cried for fire. A spark flashed and the tree was blown to shreds as the lightning struck. The fire caught and smeared hot flames over the small woods, erupting chaos as lives fled. By morning this would be a charred wasteland. But for now, the sky growled thunder, spit lightning, and cried for more fire.

This is a great descriptive paragraph, but I think it could have been expanded on a bit.  If you're going to write short, descriptive pieces, why don't you branch out into poetry?

i posted in the form that it seems like people rarely comment and rate on others work so a few people said they would comment and rate some of my work if i did it to theirs ... its my first time doing that so i guess thats why its only now that so many people are commenting
