Did Jesus Pass By?

I was at Trader Joe’s
in Lousiville
my wife was in the hospital

I could not find flowers
the florists were closed

Went to Trader Joes for wine
and saw flowers

The blonde manager
with a ring in her nose
and lips
asked if she could help me

she selected the flowers
and gave me a Vace
and added water
to keep the flowers alive

She asked who the flowers were for
I said my wife who is in the hospital
she said when you check out
give the check out peson her name
the flowers are a gift from me
there will be no charge to you

I went to the car
and for the first time in years
I cried
for this act of kindness

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
