My Mother in Law

My Mother in Law

 

My Mother in Law is a woman of substance

a two seater with a matching armchair

A clear glass table for coffee and drinks

A Dream of no Consequence

A Dream of no Consequence

 

I was in a large public park

the sort found in a city's suburbs

With large expanses of lawn

shaded by old well established trees

Herbaceous borders abounded

delineating pathways punctuated with benches

It was a summer's afternoon

and I was quite alone meandering

In my knapsack I had a large wedge

of English Stilton Cheese but nothing to ...
