                     Walking inside the Lillies

‘Calm down Billy, I know it’s scarey that mum’s gone missing. It’s only been 24 hours, sure she’ll be re-join our tour group soon’. Brian was  also telling himself alongside his son to calm down. Where had Lula gone and why? She’d disappeared during the visit to the sultan’s palace.

‘I become smaller and smaller, my shoulders brushed with pollen,

feeling faint from breathing in the lillies’ scent.

the pale sunlight shines through the translucent pearly  petals, which become

the  palace courtyard with a fountain at its heart.

I am spellbound by this place

what else is there ? Only the distant clamour of my other life.
