100 Word Wednesday: Week 54 – The Present Future


Photo by Roman Logov


When the future arrived we gathered in the city centre to plan the next fifty years.

The present future was looking bright for us. The seasons had been favourable to cropping and the babies were now growing stronger after years of uncertainty.

We decided the buildings in good order we’d use to create learning centres as the past held lots of lessons we could all benefit from.

There were fears the tower would fall soon if the tremors continued. We were urged to stay away from the tower.

We liked the notion of a future, it gave us all hope.

    Isn’t it interesting how the future gives us hope, but then it becomes present and a grind and then the past and regret…?
