the flower girl...and the city

I saw her this morning...
Just happened to meet her on the road...
Walking blithely carrying a wickerwork full of flowers....
Flowers so beautifully vibrant!
Flowers of different hues....an assorted collection of joy and perfume...
Joy and bliss emanating from her as if she was born that way...
Happy...So happy by her shiny face...dimpled cheeks...flushed lips...

I saw her, the flower girl...
Selling happiness and warmth...
On the chilly morn...
 On the busy street-peopled...
On the street so noisy and baffling...
On the street of the city...
With people walking mindlessly...
People and cars speeding like traffic...
Reminding me of Lois Lenski...
