Saturday Centus…Late Again

me 004
I was enjoying the morning sky, stunned and hypnotized by its magnificent beauty.
 
A small dot appeared through the patchy clouds, growing larger in it’s descent.  I watched, time slowed for me but the object seemed to speed up the closer it came.

What was this unidentified falling object?

Crashing into the ground, only yards away, I ran…was it a meteorite, a space pod, or just a fallen bird?

The oblong “thing” was a greenish color with no openings in sight. I cautiously approached, walking around, looking, reaching…it was warm to the touch.

Without warning, it split open revealing... “two peas in a pod”.
Just having a little fun with the writing prompt of the week at Saturday Centus . Join in the fun!
