What If? Writing Prompts: Nature V

Earth Day is this Saturday, and that means it’s time for some new “What If?” Writing Prompts! This week’s post features yet another batch of prompts in the theme of nature and environmentalism. See what stories you can spin from these ideas, and feel free to add more of your own! Enjoy!

What if… there were only one way to save the environment from total destruction… and it came at the price of half the global human population?

What if… human beings were the only animals in the world?

What if… all the trees in the world disappeared?

What if… every food source on the planet became sustainable?

What if… all major sources of carbon emission on Earth suddenly stopped?

Good luck writing more environmentalist stories!

If you have any “What If?” writing prompt suggestions (for any theme), please feel free to share them in the comments below. Ideas I like may be featured in future “What If?” posts, with full credit and a link to your blog (if you have one)! Also, if you’ve written a piece based on an idea you’ve found here, be sure to link back to the respective “What If?” post. I would love to see what you’ve done with the prompt! Thank you!

Vanishing Sands (Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge #113)

Down the winding shore
Tiny grains of sand vanish
Through the still hourglass

On the beach you’ll see
Soft footprints across the sand
Fade away with time

When the sea breeze blows
White sands fly and disappear
Into tomorrow


My responses to Ronovan WritesWeekly Haiku Challenge #113: Beach & Time. Another fun challenge! Thanks for the prompt, Ronovan!

River Stones

Water flows freely
Over the still riverbank
Stones gleam in the sun

Tiny ripples dance
All along the water’s edge
See the pebbles shine

Waves sway to and fro
Winding down the twisted stream
Smooth rocks tumble free


My responses to Ronovan WritesWeekly Haiku Challenge #112: River & Stone. This is my first time participating in this challenge, and it’s proven to be a lot of fun! I’d definitely like to participate again! Thanks for the prompt, Ronovan!

Beautiful World

Have you ever stopped to marvel
At the beautiful world you live in?
Pay attention to the life around you, and
Please take care to treat it with respect, for
Years from now, it may all be gone!

Environmental wonders can be found
All across the globe, from
Rainforests to deserts to oceans.
Today we celebrate them all, and
How beautiful our natural world is!

Don’t let this beauty be destroyed.
Always cherish the splendor of nature.
You have the power, so make a change today!
