It could have been easy

This little girl
waved shyly
free of her parents
out from under the umbrella
free to turn her face to the rain.

This little girl
two weeks in a row
came and stood by me until I noticed
and I said hello.

The second time
this little girl
grinned hugely
before running off to play.

The parents see/don’t see me
pull her by the hand
she turns back and looks
at me
just me.
