Childhood Joy

singin' in the rain--Haiku
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2016

As I was hurrying through the dark parking lot to go into the grocery store, I pulled my coat tight around me as it was chilly and rainy.  All of a sudden a bright warm feeling entered my heart.  There in the midst of it all I heard the sweet voice of a little child singing.  Seemingly unaware of the weather, she waited patiently for her mom to load groceries into the car, as she sang a little melody all her own. 🙂  I had to smile.  A good reminder to be joyful in all circumstances! 🙂
