SHE DIDN’T NEED MUCH

SHE DIDN'T NEED MUCH
(about Braelynn J., 52, Blessings, CT, USA)

She didn't need much.
The sun shining for a few minutes 
in the midst of a dark day
was fine for her. 
A glass of silvery water in her hand,
a piece of toast perfectly cooked,
the sound of her footsteps 
in soft snow -
all of these were sufficient 
to bring her a feeling of fulfillment. 
She ate her meals 
on a small plate on a small table. 
One simple window in the kitchen
let in the light
which always seemed
to surround the table
and the small plate 
with modest cheerfulness.
