A YEAR UNDERFOOT – entry #162

A Year Underfoot


March 2nd, 2034

It s 3:18 in the morning and a bright flash of white light has just turned the  predawn into high noon. There was no explosion, -no concussive shock, only a blinding flash, -a split second at most, that lit the night, then faded back the darkness.

It wasn’t natural, that much I know.

Ours, or theirs, does it matter?

7:35 a.m. Sun’s up, show’s over.

What was that?
