Reena’s Xploration Challenge #233 has given us this picture prompt today.

Sands of time, travel seamlessly through each doorway. Where once was a home, now is empty. She blinks. Time, flows, gathers, layer upon layer, until new memories are created.

Past hurt only lingers for a little while, until grains cover each and every piece of pain like a silk blanket. Each strand creating another future. Dreams shift in your mind. All the forgotten thoughts brought together in one memory.

Sometimes Poppy wasn’t sure her memories were real.

Yet, they were all she could hold on to, like grains of sands everything sifted in between the gaps of her fingers. She needed to remember his voice, the way they were in tune with each other. The twin connection and on his last night she felt such rage.

As he breathed his last, after the motorbike crash, there was someone with him.
