CW: When dusk meets dawn.

“Craft a 99-word flash fiction, featuring the rock.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.

Hundreds of years ago, Day and Night were sentenced to public service by Day’s protective Father. He did not like Night, so he had a witch cast a spell on them.

Day would sleep at night, and Night would sleep during the day. Each leading their own lives, never being able to meet.

But Day’s Mother saw how unhappy her daughter was, and she decided to help the love birds. She made it possible for the two of them to meet briefly every time they switched.

Day and Night.

Wardens of Humanity.

When dusk meets dawn

Hope is born…

Rock info:
Found at Calumet Water Works
July 2017

Red rhyolite meets pistachio-green epidote in a beach-worn rock that looks like a yin-yang. From the private collection of Charli Mills (not in circulation).

    1. Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Like per usual, I had a few ideas which direction to take it into, but the “old legends” path was persistent in all the options.
      Charli sent out different rocks/ rock pictures to different people. I was so happy when I got mine.
