Yellow Roses

Blood rushed to my cheeks as I realised I was still clutching the prayer book he’d handed to me as I entered the church.

“I’m so sorry!”

He smiled. “There’s no need to apologise. At our age, we tend to get a little forgetful.”

A pair of baby blue eyes met mine. Although his face was unlined, it had the translucent quality of either the very young or the very old and a light breeze set his fine, white hair dancing about his head like thistledown. At a rough guess he looked to be at least eighty and I was a little taken aback to be bracketed in the same age group.

His eyes twinkled into mine as he turned to leave.

“I look forward to seeing you next week.”
