“The Coming of Earth-Shaker” / Memorable Fancies #1903

[earth-shaker series – episode IX]

Geologists announced that the source of each successive quake seemed to be an area – narrow and about three miles long, as if miners of some ancient race were following a vein of precious metal. Roads buckled, a few small towns were no longer heard from.

We feared the worst, but yesterday a message came: the chthonic spirits “regret the inconvenience, thank you for your patience”; necessary infrastructure work would soon be finished, they informed us, full service restored to the world.

The shaking continued another two days, but then, as promised, stopped.

We walk cautiously over the earth, now, stepping lightly.

We have unsteady thoughts, now, precarious concerns.
