Crossing the Chasm

she counted on one hand
some days
that required effort…
on those fingers
she found the times
when a single moment
was an unmistakable chasm
between before and after

time was fluid
yet life possessed no flow
instead, a corduroy road…
chasm or no
the time required to cross
was an instant
all her perspectives changed
on the other side

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
