Friday Fictioneers – the world in a grain of sand


They probably think I’m a bit strange. But then they probably see only a messy picnic blanket here. That would explain why they’re trying to pull me away. If the picnic’s over, it’s time to go. But I wasn’t here to eat the chicken drumsticks and the potato salad. This mess is exactly what I’ve been waiting for.

The geometry of crumbs on the checkerboard pattern describes one particular folding of space-time. Perhaps today, this will be the universe that contains you, and I can dive in and find you again.


Friday fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Wisoff Fields to write a 100-word story in response to a photo prompt. You can find other stories here

  1. An intriguing tale. I fear his quest is doomed. Even in a finite three dimensional maze there is a finite chance that two seekers will never meet. I hate to think what the chance is in a space with more than three dimensions.

  2. And heaven in a wild flower. I like it. 🙂 I think we’ve all been there at some point, where we are looking for something/someone so hard and longingly that we see them everywhere.
