#BlogBattle is a weekly short story/flash fiction challenge using a single word for inspiration.
By Shifting Sands the Castle Stands
The golden legend of Moreka
Tells of a stolen castle
That cannot be found by outsiders.
One chance, you could step within its fabled walls.
The faith of an innocent,
Childlike belief may one day get you there
After following the clues that change daily
Shifting landscapes, the teasing glimpse
Of a distant turret to keep you hoping
That one day you may step inside its golden gates.
When the mist is light, the road ahead short
Remember, each step you take turns your head around
The legend states it can be found
By one who has a clear day to see
To run, to grab the one chance given
To one who sees the golden gate shimmer…
