“There something hidden in all of us. Small gift waiting to be discovered.” ~Jacqueline Woodson


It was a normal day.

Cold feet
Honks and horns
Halts making me fly out
But the tight black belt catches me back

Eyes blurry
Sky too dim
Time slows down
As I spot
it.

Flashing lights
In the cloudy afternoon sky

Mystery lurking by

Man lay flat
Mud brown jacket
Kicked around shoes
Old teared up jeans

Paved ground free of blood
Scraps
Broken glass

Cars flying past

Tall men
Blue suits
Red and blue frightens me too
Looking around
Scrunched up face

Peer out
Look around
Until you pass
Wanting one more chance to look
Honks and horns
I look away

It’s a normal day
again
