she who needeth no sign


because while i was inside wondering what to say,
and how much to say of it,
she was outside twirling through the puddles,
leftover rain, sparkling pink, boot scootin' down the sidewalk,
and that's the way you do it.

    And a cross legged pose that beams with girlish contentedness.
