It doesn’t take much

It doesn’t take much. Hand them a bagful of groceries from your pantry. Smile. Ask how the baby is doing. Give a greeting in their Roma dialect. Her brown eyes are soft as she breaks into a shy smile. Her young skeptical face, now beams. A handshake and a greeting. They walk away down the street. The air is chill, but hopefully, in a small way, their hearts are warm.
