Threw this one together quickly…not sure it can be kept up with in its leaps. Apologies. But I made something. Thanks always Friday Fictioneers
Blue Walls & Vines
The blue of the walls was brighter than sky, made peaceful by children’s playthings. The Other was far. Another place, other time. Among grapevines and meadows.
Both worlds had clouds. I remember. It takes time to conjure this up.
Her sky and those vines reminded me where I was – in a room full of chatter, chaotic with toys. One is peace; one is peaceful. Both are fraught. Both are ripe. There’s a difference.
We had hoped that it wouldn’t be great, but would carry. And it does, in its longing, its loss.
Both are fraught, both are ripe. Both are lovely.
