Heart felt – mother and child

Two figures walking in the car park,

One tall, bobbed brown hair curling under her chin,

Neat, tidy, ends tucked in

The other small, an erratic planet

Following her mother, the Sun, in a solipsistic orbit

On solid legs.

Behind the little figure, trailing on a string

is a toy puppy, ears flapping, tail wagging

Bumping on tiny red wheels over the uneven tarmac.

Two figures walking together, mother and child

Together forever.
