“Mother?  Where am I?”

“We’re having a nice hot cup of tea.”  

She held her plain white porcelain mug with dainty fingers, and took a sip.

“Why are you wearing a white dress?  You hate white.”

The scent of Earl Grey intermingled with six white fresh-cut roses from her garden.  The sun began to drift down…down…down…fiery golds, orange and red becoming muted greys and green while we silently sipped tea together.

Darkness…bone chilling cold…legs pinned…arms pressed under tons of earthquake.

“Mama…I don’t want to die.  Not like this!”

“Sleep my child,” Mother said.  “Soon you will be coming home.”
