Weekly Photo Challenge – Dreaming (and a bit of flash fiction)

I walked quickly up the steps, careful not to trip over the roots erupting from the stones. I shouldn’t be here. As I climb each step my vision grows narrower. My heart pounds. In the shadows I can only focus on a few steps in front of me. I am approaching the house, but I can only see the limbs and cobwebs. A spider moves. A few minutes before there had been no breeze. It had been light. Or just a light. I don’t remember.

In the morning, a photograph sits on the dresser. Did I awake here yet?
