THE DIMENSION OF IMAGINATION
The hourglass photo prompt taunts me. “You call yourself an author?”
Bits of flotsam swirl through my mind. Or is it jetsam? I get them confused.
There’s always my go-to theme. “I’ll take historical fiction for a hundred, Alex.”
Surfing the internet for ‘history of clocks,’ my findings are less exciting than watching oatmeal simmer.
Jim Croce saved time in a bottle and Steve Miller sang, “Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future.”
Sand trickles through the witch’s hourglass.
“This, my little pretty, is how much time you have left and it isn’t long. Make every word count.”
