Wordle 24: Time Fractured

Time Fractured

It was as simple as this: time fractured. The web, holding together seconds and centuries, broke into long strands of gossamer. Future. Past. Present.

A threshold opened, hanging above the great clock now static at one minute to the fifth senesce.

Waves of contentedness wafted from the entrance, calming the populace and the changes caused no alarm.

For the brave and the insane.

The threshold was a magnet, a voice calling, visions of splendor and salvation.

For others, mephitic vapors and poltergeists blew out of the portal.

Thus the people fractured.

      Thank you. I’m not always sure where my words will take me!

          Sometimes they just write themselves, or a line or two will pop out, and the rest goes from there.
          Of course, not every story/poem flows that easily. I still have to work at stuff. My muse takes a lot of spa days.

            I guess our muses need some R & R time from time to time.

              I guess they do, but I never get invited to my muse’s spa retreats!

                Well why invite us, think of the fun they have without us around.

                  That’s what I worry about. If she is having too much fun, she might not come back. Become the resort’s muse, or a writer sitting on the beach waiting for Inspiration. Sigh
