I won't forget passing this girl by in my hurry to get to the stores and forgetting to go back and give her a bit of money.


Rain beating on the ground.
Swift eddies flowing into gutters;
Sticks swirling in the grey mud flow.
Hasty umbrellas pop up like mushrooms in the air.
Girl slumped upon the ground;
The thin, the creeping rain
soaking her trembling, shivering body.
Sad girl leaning against the shop window.
Lights hurt-bright and goods all shapes and colours
glitter behind her to tempt the passers-by.
They stop a fleeting, captured moment, then move on.
But she, sad, weeping girl, ignored.
Relentless stream of people; a stream
Casting humanity aside like flotsam
Cast up on a bank.
In winter rain.

Nice visual!

Sad, harsh, but very real; a moving and meaningful account well-shared, Lorri. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
