small things

Bit of this
Out of the corner of my eye, a 4 year old in shocking pink dress and pink feather boa floats past.

I feel a calm descend, turning around I see Mrs A in quiet meditation eyes closed hands surrounding warm mug. I notice the children on her dinner table are quietly munching lunch, it fills the rest of the space all are quieter.  

Whippet startles a flock of small birds feeding on stubble. They take off as one,  flashing molten wings picked out by golden sunshine.

Bit of that
This life is a test 
it is only a test.
Had it been actual life
you would have received 
further instructions on
where to go and what to do.
