One Step: a #writephoto #tankaprose

It’s a space I could call home. A manucured lawn, a tended landscape, slate pavers laid in a welcoming walkway. All I need to do is step through this open door.

But the surrounding darkness ensnares me. A paralyzing anxiety consumes me. Would that I let this tantalizing fear go and take…

Just one more step. Just one …

sunlit stucco

through a distant window

a lone cross

how the terrors of old nights

erupt in new darkness

    I hadn’t noticed the ‘cross’ through the window. I believe it is just distant fencing…but it does look like one. Maybe it is only the perception that matters.
