Long Time No See

When Colleen arrived this morning and knocked,
and I opened the door, she stood on my top step
widely smiling. She wore a white top, an orange skirt,
and a pendant on a long white cord, with a tiny,
serene head of the Buddha. Her pale red hair
was brushed back from her face at the sides, curving
above her forehead. Her big eyes shone. She gave me
a long hug. All in all, she was that ray of sunshine 
people talk about, when they want to say 
that someone made them happy. And she did!
