Alternate history writing prompt

Every century or so, a 10-meter meteor slams into the Earth with the force of a small nuclear device. Tunguska was the site of the last, in 1908, and it was pure luck that that meteor landed in the uninhabited wilderness of Siberia.

What would the world be like today if the meteorite had hit 18 hours later and flattened Washington, DC? (Or Austria, killing Hitler, or Moscow, killing Lenin and returning the Romanovs to power…). What’s more, what if the blast that destroyed a capital city was claimed by someone to be their work with a superweapon?

Liquid Silver, Tangeable Red

December14

Moonlight like liquid silver pours over leaves
And wind whispers through the tree tops.
Grass tickles between my toes and I think of you.

The rose, the thorn, the scent on the breeze.
Velvet black scattered with diamonds press down
And I step to the flower, reaching for its beauty.

Even in the dark, the red color shines bright.
Mist cools my skin as I kneel on the ground.
A single rose for a single memory, wanting more.
