Downtown sidewalk, Saturday morning

I’m not sure it’s possible

not to have fun

when you’re with a little girl

in bright pink pants

apple rain boots,

a lemon yellow sweater

and, of course, an owl hat.

Especially when that little girl

is the kind of girl

who chooses such colorful togs simply

because they make her happy.

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say she makes ME happy!

Reminds me of the William Carlos Williams poem:

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.

That does it: Parker, you’re now in charge of assigning an awesome poem to every one of my posts.
