During the scorching heat she
spends her days on a bench
inside the mall-
marveling the children and
cooing with babies

With a smile that outshines
the brightest star and eyes that
sparkle like diamonds, she pats
their heads

With disfigured fingers, she
rummages through her faded
tapestry bag thatís held together
with string and safety pins and
offers them treats

A cloud replaces her smile-
her lids flutter and release
diamonds down her face

With her hand outstretched, she
swivels in her seat to watch
her new friends scamper away
until they are out of her sight.

She looks in her hand at
the candy wrappers

For a moment she was happy and so were the kids, they left her the wrappers and ate all her treats. A bittersweet memory.

Marilyn,

It is good to read you! This gave me a smile, though
sad at the end, her emptiness after the children have gone.

Dear Marilyn,

A cloud replaces her smile-
her lids flutter and release
diamonds down her face ---> This certainly released a few diamonds down my face. An exceptionally descriptive and touching write Marilyn.

warm hugs

Happy to read you Marilyn....

How terrible I must be, expecting something sinister to happen..

Just a lonely old lady enjoying the now. Prolly lamenting on her past...

Nicely done..
