She waved to the ant

She sat there on the sidewalk, playing with her pepper shaker. 

Along came an ant. He made loops and circles between her legs. 


She pointed and poked. 

I half expected her to crush him in curiosity. 

Instead, she recognized life in that little, seemingly insignificant thing before her. 

Aria stood up. 

And waved. 

“Bye bye!”
