Three Word Wednesday

Posted Wednesday February 17


This week's given words are fearful, engulf and grimace.



A crowded street. Strangers hustling, shuffling, pacing as if no one but them exists. Then slow motion. Everything  blurred, unfocused. One face, a distant face breaks through the haze. Staring eyes, a grimace. Threatening. He feels fearful, frightened, engulfed by trepidation. Then realisation. A shiny shop window. His own reflection.

  3. Yes..shop windows are like carnival mirrors at time..in your head you are at least twenty years younger and not completely hideous..then turn a corner in Marks and Sparks and it's Halloween (I speak for myself of course)

  4. I hate the truthfulness of mirrors and windows. The hall of mirrors at the funfair used to be so much fun but every mirror is like that for me now!
