Cornflower’s New Name – p.11

July 26, 2011 at 6:59 pm 1 comment

The part of Cornflower’s mind that was still thinking logically knew that a snake was slithering over her feet. The rest of her was still trapped in a twilight limbo, where sounds replaced vision and the world had always been black.

She did not react to what the snake was doing. It was pointless to look down so she did not. She felt with her skin, instead of seeing with her eyes, that it was not just passing by on its way to somewhere else. It was going back and forth, over and between her feet, twisting and turning. Was there only one snake after all? She couldn’t quite tell and gave up trying.

Her thoughts came and went, like clouds passing overhead, and she watched them without judgment. She saw her friends playing in the river, her mother making bread, saw so many memories of her life that when she saw herself standing with her arms out, greeting the sunrise, with many feathers in her long white hair, she did not immediately understand that it was the future she was seeing, and not the past.
