__My cluttered imagination wasn't able to find the source of her sobbing.
__One could say, then, I have missed... the last bus.
__Lovit! Still thinking, Bill. _m

There are so many reasons I could imagine why she's sobbing...

So sad, Bill.

Thank you, John, Doug, Monika, and Gillena. My intention was to put the reader in something like the position I was in: sympathetically aware of another's pain, but ignorant of the cause and unable to do anything about it.

Thanks for mentioning the outcome of the Caribbean Kigo Kukai voting, Gillena. I'll post the poem that won recognition.

So simple but striking - this could be the opening or closing image of a great film or book.
