On the 29th of Sept 2017

a miracle happened:

She was calm collected

unusually quiet and would

not moan about pain in her


mistreated since she was

a child

who suffered when she was

dead quiet.


Together we move goods

from SAM’s market

with a stop at Lidl

where I buy some natural

still water

to prepare chlorine free



On foot we proceed to the

bus stop at Weidling station

miss the noon bus and sit

still for another 30 minutes

on a bench

but fortunately in the warming


I greet her

place my arm around her


She feels fragile

a shadow of her once

striking beauty.

What’s with you today?

she asks astonished

holding my shoulder and

kissing me hello?

It’s a good day

filled with sunshine

I say.
