The Little Girl

from Kyla - Wednesday, September 13, 2006
accessed 860 times

She was a Kodak moment
the little girl
laughing at the leaves that fell
that day in the wind
her legs bowed
her skirt flying
the ruffles swaying to the song
of the breeze
the smile flitting across her face
her eyes sparkling with leftover sunlight
as the clouds grew
across the sky
stealing what was supposed to be
(the weatherman had promised)
a beautiful day
but she was unaware
of the shadows that buried her world
she only saw the wind
ask the leaves to dance
and heard the sound
of their movements
sweeping across the dance floor
of the playground turned ballroom
laughing at them stumble
as they practiced their moves
(they danced as amateurs)
but she grinned
because somehow she knew
that this was an old dance
a dance passed down the years
a dance that another little girl
(perhaps even her own)
would stand and watch and laugh and then
turn on her heel
to dance along
and when it began to rain
she didn’t notice
it was only when someone
pulled her away
that she began to think
there was something wrong
with the rain

 Whenever the editor gets to it poll.

 The poll you never heard about because you have never looked at previous polls which really means the polls that never got posted.

 The out dated poll.

 The who really gives a crap poll.
