Talking to the moon

 

Time is a thread outstretched in whatever remains of August sunshine. The light dims as quickly as it reappears.

My father’s thumb and index finger pinch the string with apprehension. His hand leans on my mother’s loosening grip.

Is this growth?

At the other end of time, a figure moves in recession.
