Treasure in the Lane II
The sidewalk was blocked by scaffolding so I took the lane home. As I rounded the corner into the lane - the place of trash bins, cars, sometimes vagrants, sometimes treasures - my heart got snagged on this spindly rose bush thriving without any sign of care in a hostile environment. It was the best thing I saw all day. It wasn't a great day. But I was touched by the spontaneous defiant rose.
