Tiny Stories: The Impossible Knot

Popular belief has it that the universe is comprised of atoms. In reality, the universe is actually made up of…

Everything she ever owned was now little more than ash and in the charred remains of her once luxurious home, time crept at its petty pace around Emmeline Massingham without ever quite touching her for she was stuck in a moment.

Her fingers, gnarled and crippled with arthritis, pinched and pulled at a ball of concentrated time, trying to unravel an impossible knot made from the ancient threads of musty eras and epochs long past.

She realized her efforts were most likely in vain but could not stop herself from attempting to reverse the merest moment of eternity’s clock and, with crochet hooks at the ready, reknit a reality in which her family had not perished in the fire.

  1. Very creative and beautiful.
    The longing to turn back time and wish for an altered reality plagues us all. It’s like a drug that we want to get high on but its effects are merely hallucinations. Something to give us momentary joy and relief. I’ve often gone so deep into such thinking that I’ve knitted, crocheted, and stitched beautiful life patterns.
    Well done, Rhyan! 🙂
