Gift

Elevator lifts
Her head up
Today amongst and amidst
All the other
Days
Journey through
Levels and spaces
Only few catch her
By surprise
With a simple
Recognition
So prone to prediction
Rarely startled by courtesy
The deed of kindness
Caught her
As a leaf in the wind
She is now
Floating
A thank you
Says nothing
A letter
Fails to express all gratitude
Falling face first
Arms and legs
Outstretched on the ground
Accompanied by
Word and sound,
“Now, I am found,
Now forever grateful.”
Begins to scrape
The bones of
Appreciation
