Splinter… 15 Minute Fiction

15-minute Fiction Week challenge. The challenge is to create a story or poem based on the given photo in 100 words.

Imbedded in these hallowed halls

Light is stenciled

On the floors and walls

Captured from another time

Witness lost

To the sublime

Heavy is the burden still

Flushed to flight

A Whippoorwill

Boots once scuffed

Upon these floors

The story lost

Forever more

And yet, โ€˜tis here

From days gone past

A shift in time

That will not last

And even poltergeist take flight

Afraid of day

Afraid of night

Oh, weathered door

What do you see

A splinter in reality
