Observation in the food court

A CUP OF TEA AND A SLICE OF LIFE

People in wheelchairs
old, disabled.
Men behind counter in striped aprons
cappuccinos on special.
Cleaning lady busy at work
trolley laden with brushes brooms buckets and such.
Tables, chairs,
people sitting, chatting quietly or
pondering.
happy/sad.
People in coats
people in suits.
Children – dancing, laughing
asking questions questions – tiredness
Mothers strained.
Mothers – feeding babies
to the breast so warm.
Elderly – together always
sharing life
For some
sitting alone
with silent thoughts.
