50 words Thursdays # 3

The rules
1 Completed piece must be in multiples of 50 words – maximum of 250 words. Anything is acceptable – poetry, story, anecdote.
2 There will be a photo and a random phrase that I will take from the current book I am reading – you can use either or both
3 Please pingback and tag 50 word Thursday, so I can do a summary on the Thursday morning. You can either put your piece in the comments on this post or do a post of your own.

And here is the phrase to include: ‘Although it was a simple thing to be doing, something strange was happening.’

In between the places;

Although it was a simple thing to be doing, something strange was happening as Jack stepped in the alley at the back of the apartment block. The space which had looked narrow and dark at first, seemed to be expanding into a wide ally. He rubbed his eyes to make sure that he wasn’t dreaming. He decided to go ahead and explore the scene before him. There was a gentle climb, the road ascending into a higher level. At the end there was the gingerbread house that had always appeared in his dreams. He finally had found his dream house.

He loved all shapes, colors and designs

The paintings he painted were swirls of all

Vibrant shapes, colors and intricate shapes

The smooth flowing pattern was his signature style

One color turning into the other

One shape morphing into another

Pattern flowing changing evolving

Gladdening the eye, heart and mind

The people were mad after his art, it was coveted

The bidding always ran high when any of his pieces

Were on sale, people drove the price higher and higher

He sat in the back and smiled at their folly

To him it was how he saw the world anyway
