A smile worth a thousand words shown on her face
It was one that rose above the chatter of the café courtyard
The harmony of space and time, stood still
Stopped on a dime to capture just one moment
“Smile big, Oksana!”
The next day… the smiles turned to frowns.
The skies turned to disaster.
People sitting now scattered.
Life changed and stood still again.
Life would never be the same.
