Cracks on the sidewalk,
intersecting and crossing,
creating crude pictures in the concrete,

leaves fill the trees,
veined and quivering,
dancing in the wind,

streetlights on the corner,
bright and giving,
winking out as the sun rises,

the small things in life,
beautiful and delicate,
going unnoticed sometimes.
