IT IS ALL A MATTER OF VIEW



TERROR OR TREASURE
People walked round, wanting to see what comes to ground while they weren’t watching as they walked round Hometown. While walking and talking they found it. Everyone perceived different impressions of it. Some saw dragon’s flame, others saw children at a game. While the truth is. As life sits; it’s whatever you make of it.

It is Friday right? I hope so or I am way early or late to join in the 55 Games of Galen the Good. Write a 55 word story lyrical or not as you wish may your desire to do it add up to no more nor less than 55 words linked to the Le Maestro of the mastication of food for thought.
