Arch in time – a drabble
In the garden waiting for her friend to bring tea. It’s a long time since she’s been in this garden. She gazes at the trellis archway vine-threaded.
A picture of a woman walking through the archway before a group of spectators appears. Bouquet in hand the woman steps in time to soft music.
Two men stand waiting. The woman looks only at the flowers in her hands. She stops in front of them looking up as a tear slips from her chin onto the flowers.
Here’s our tea. Are you crying?
‘Something flew into my eye while admiring your trellis.’
