Afternoon Salvation

We’d just sauntered through the park

five children walking

and were dangling our feet over the edge of the pier when we heard “plop” and a squeal.

Then we saw it.

The shoe.

Floating away.

Completely out of reach.

Then our rescuers rode up the canal.

And one happy little girl went back to collecting leaves.
