I Know That Look.

I saw a woman walking down the street today. She's a woman I see fairly often, and she's beautiful. She's usually very stern and serious- she's got things to accomplish, you know. She walks with direction. But today she was walking comfortably, purse slung over her stylishly blazer-wrapped shoulder, and a dozen roses in the other arm- she was cradling them. Her other hand was holding her cell phone close to her ear, and she was laughing freely into the speaker to the person on the other end.

There was this very familiar glint in her eyes- she had her roses and she was simply lit from inside. Even when she wasn't laughing she couldn't stop smiling- I couldn't help but smile as I saw her walk by.

It's funny what a flower can do.
