#117 – Woman Forty Four

As she presses the door open, her body is met with a

surge of heat releasing itself from the dark room.

The evening sun is low, but temperatures have risen.

 

She enters, observes the salt.

Just days ago,

transparent crystals shimmered like

a field of false diamonds.

 

And now, unexpectedly they

have disintegrated into a soft, vague snowfall.

 

The bright white forms crumble at the touch,

defying her attempts to coax them into a new landscape.
