I have a flower thief in my neighborhood.
Ive been catching this little old lady who goes for walks around my neighborhood daily. Shes in her 80s and has this tiny little dog that i suspect
is her only companion. She has a sad face and a lonely gate to how she walks as if always in deep pensive thought.
When she gets to my apartment she stops, looks around to see if theres anyone watching.
Then she shuffles through the bushes infront of my patio to get closer to my flowers, stands on her tippy toes and with the tips of her fingers barely
reaching plucks a lone flower and exitedly runs off like a little misfit.
I never say anything because i think its kinda cute.
Just now as im getting ready to head out the door i see her sneaking up the sidewalk. This time i pluked a flower and ran out and gave it to her.
She was thrilled and i think embarrassed a little figuring that i have caught on that shes been stealing my flowers.
I just smiled. And said ill give her a flower each time i see her.
She smiled back, slightly teary eyed and her posture changed to just a little less sad.
I said im dave waved and walked off.
I gave her one of zazzys sunshine cuase i wanted her to feel sunny too.
At park now. Waiting on my buddy. Hes late again.
