Remnant of the Day #2139

When the tree that once lived here grew around this cable, it must have trigged some sort of electromagnetic time-space anomaly. The body of the tree is long gone, removed without remorse by city workers, but a small slice of it remains, hovering in the air, just as it was years ago. The area where it intersects the wire, it seems, is stuck in a temporal bubble of sorts, and so the tree-bit from years past follows us along in time, never aging, untouched by entropy.

You find these anomalous here and there in any city. Perhaps in some of them you might find a bird nest, and even a hatching egg – the beak just protruding, frozen moments away from its first glimpse at the world.
