This story really freaked me out. I like your take on the impending destruction about to unfold.

Classic story. Considering Colours can't be identified by any known color spectrum, this is a fabulous rendition! Love it lots.

One paragraph describes the snow as being noticeably LESS on that farm than elsewhere, and somebody saw something foraging in the yard. He glimpsed the colour itself !

 

The wildlife was becoming -odd, and in the spring, wildlife and vegetation was too much for normal people's nerves ! (like the deformed woodchuck, and the rabbit tracks !)

What the experts found in that well - no bottom, fetid bubbling mud, corroded bones,of animals -and of 2 boys !, and the way the trees behaved near it. Something climbing out of it, and ,after feeding, going back in. (Nahum was the last victim, and the colour was getting strong and feeding fast !). The horse died of sheer terror at something it saw, and another horse ran off. The horses in the barn had ,some time ago, gone mad and had to be shot.

By far and away one of the most disturbing and disquieting stories I have ever read. Such a great job capturing that feeling.

You're welcome, yes he was rather vague! Everything was unspeakably horrific yet with very minimal description as to HOW horrific

true at the same time that what's make his universe so crazy original that we can't even imagine and it go beyond human comprehension, i love this, how many times i've tried to imagine what he was describing and find myself in the impossibilty to imagine something out of our own lil box of "knowledge" .
As a visual artist there is nothing more challenging and frustrating haha :D like WTF i cannot illustrate his novelllssss whhhyyy
