Flash Friday 55

"Ein Feste Burg ist Unser Gott"
(A Mighty Fortress is our God)

From a strange dream I awoke to find myself protected. Evil was below and beyond, yet not close enough to affect. I could hear the wailing, almost smell the scorched souls of those who couldn't repent. Perhaps not a dream at all, now that I give consideration to last evening's affairs. How can this be?




Write a photo inspired story in 55 words or less (I don't include the title in my 55 words, maybe that's cheating, lol). Once you've posted your "55" go visit G-Man to let us know you're out there!

I found my photo on my iGoogle home page, with an app called "Amazing Places of the World." I am not sure where this place is but it's an inspiring photo for me. The title is actually the title of an old German church hymn, one of my favorites.

Great photo, great 55! "A mighty Fortress is our God" indeed! He will hide us, and protect us. Comforting thoughts. Have a great weekend!

Seems you went to bed -maybe-with the wrong company... It's easy to get away from heaven and from hell as well...

Great 55!

Nice one. It reminds me of the fort at San Juan.
