FB3X Drabble Cascade #25 - Echoes (Gen Lit)

Suitable for All

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

This is my drabble entry for the 25th Drabble Cascade. This week there's a competition to win $25 Amazon Voucher too!

Author's Note

I've had the song 'Windmills of My Mind' going round and round in my head all morning, and it's unrelenting style inspired this drabble.

by Sophie Duncan

Time rolls on and round and down and through and, maybe sometimes, even back, and wherever it flows, Time leaves a trace. Places love Time, their stones cling onto it, even after it is long past, and when another moment is right, they repeat the streams of history they have witnessed.

Echoes in marble and granite and earth, sometimes we can share them as they whisper past us, out of Time, ethereal and unnerving. Our skin ripples with the unrightness of them, our eyes blink in disbelief, and maybe our heart beats a little faster at these ghosts in Time.
