A Nanosecond

It’s Quadrille Monday over at the dVerse Poets Pub! This time our writing prompt is some form of the word crack.

Almost never

a sliver of sunlight cracks through

the brick-like layer of eternal gloom.

For a nanosecond I convince myself that

you are at work

or the hardware store.

The accident never happened;

It was all a mistake

and you’ll be home

any minute.


(for Delfina O.)
