Karen Delasala

moon dials

the elderly gentleman says
"thank you dear"
as I hold the door open for him
he takes some small steps
with a cane for support
and a weary smile appears
he says
"I have to watch this step here"
And I wait patiently behind him

he had asked the salesgirl in the Japanese store
for watches
with moon dials
but they were all out
