Ants.
They reminded her of ants.
Hundreds of them, scurrying around, each with a specific job to do, never getting in each other’s way or fighting over the same space.
If one stumbled or fell, another took its place.
If one was struggling with its load, another came to assist.
No words were spoken, being totally unnecessary as they had perfected their life to an art.
How ironic they were all encased in this gallery, a glass dome under which they were being studied.
They didn’t know it of course.
It was all part of an experiment in human behaviour.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
