Thoughts Floating in the Path of Memories

Wednesday prompt - Write something about a napkin.....

We drove high into the jungle
A café spread over the grounds of an old hacienda
Clay oven under a brick and palm-frond shelter with the scent of maize escaping into the mist
We sipped sweet sticky drinks, fanned ourselves uselessly
You told me about the child, never born, and you wept for a girl whose name you could barely remember
A huge butterfly, the size and color of a paper napkin, floated by and another and another
Like thoughts spiraling over our heads
Words unspoken
Floating in the path of memories

Thanks for reading..........
