Dome of Branches

Lucille gazed up at the sky. It helped her forget the stiffness in her limbs. Today, the clouds were silvery islands on inky water. A hesitant moon hid underneath, shy but luminous. There were stars, if she searched. Above all, tree branches hovered.

Lucille had always been watched over by trees. Although she faced a vast expanse, her world was confined to a dome of branches.

Sometimes the ground jerked upwards and the air rippled. Shards of glistening plastic rained down on her.

A child’s laughter. “Look! Look at the pretty snowglobe!”

Lucille just gazed up at the sky.
