The Grass and the Chandelier

The Grass and the Chandelier

There is a lawn with grass, smooth and silky looking green grass. A window, part of  someone’s bedroom, is on the left; another window behind which there are tables, chairs and a dark green couch is on the right. A large white glass chandelier hangs from the ceiling. The exterior of the house is dark brown brick. This type of house is called a chalet, like the chalets in Switzerland.  Stone steps, 4 or 5 steps, lead up to the porch. The main door of the house is made of wood and painted white. The kitchen is on the large side, with a door opening to a good-sized garden. Sun comes through the wide windows of the kitchen. The garden is big enough to build a studio or a 1 bedroom apartment. Someone walks up to the house. She turns her head to waive at the school bus driver and knocks on the door. A woman wearing an apron around her waist embraces the little girl. The woman’s cheeks are pink, almost red; her eyes shine like diamonds on an expensive bracelet. “Come, baby,” she says. “Yes, Mama. School was good today.”
