Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

Outside the garden store
Where I’d been looking
For a Christmas tree
A very old woman
Sitting outside the door
Called out to me…
“It’s cold out here!”
“Are you waiting for a ride?”
“Yes, but they’re late.
Can you take me inside?”
I did not know just how
She got there, but now
I saw she couldn’t wait
And though a stranger
I inquired, “Can you stand?”
Then leaning on her cane
My mother took my hand.
