A 365 Daily Challenge: Day193

Day 193
Topic: The arrival of a stranger
Topic given by pottsy

Dampered silence
Claustrophobic tension
Backs moving closer to the wall

The ground holds the attention
Hundreds of eyes
Suddenly reclaims interest on how a wooden floor is layed down
Counting the amount of wood
The the cracks and creeks
Nervously awaiting for the stranger to pass

Still there
Let’s count how many years
Each wooden plank has lived
Before it ended up here

Needle falls to the ground
One bounce
Three four
Rapid increase of pace
Until it falls back into a pattern of silence

Not a single eye moved
Until the man said hello
A careful nod
Then he said goodbye
And they could finally breathe again
