While running around doing errands after work I saw someone walking down the side of the road. It was A headed off to her second job.
The unmistakable gliding grace
I pull over
A smile that comes from deep inside
Warm eyes that almost hide the fatigue
Words that sound like music
No matter what they mean
A quick touch that reaches my soul
And she is gone
My heart soars like a hawk.
My apologies to Chief Dan George for the last line, but I have always liked it. It is appropriate.
Then I finished my errands and went home. Sometimes just a brief interlude can change feelings for days at a time.
