Flash 55 Friday - A Familiar Face...


Such a familiar face, the woman shopping in the store.
I remembered her, that little girl who once lived next door.
Long ago rivals, I watched her naively bend down toward the floor.
I smiled, inspired, I took her cart and ran for the door.
Little rotten Ronnie chanced to be mean just once more.

I like the playfulness of this piece. We should all keep a piece of our child self inside.
