LOST IN THE CLOUDS

“What a hobbit really needs with stewed coney is herbs and dumplings…”

“Dumplin’s?!? What’s dumplin’s, precious?”, croaked the fern-brake.

“Tender to tooth, a delight to tongue. And so airy and light as to take your spirit up to the sky for a spoonful of cloud – leaving you all warm inside as if… as if you were being hugged. But… from the inside, see…”

He only dimly heard the coughing and retching from the fern-brake… and for a treasured moment, he felt soft arms smelling of flour and clover blossoms.

Lost in the clouds – and the memory of Bell’s famous dumplings.
