When a stranger smiles

Stops while the crowd

Rush's past you ignoring


The stranger walks with


Listening to


Though the storm is harsh

All looks gloomy for 


The stranger lifts your spirits


Begin to feel fine and much better

Life is not so bad after all

Thanks to that stranger - no longer a stranger

oh Yes! i remember many such times or may be a few such times which were made good by my interactions with the strangers. May be I too could write a poem about these one day or an essay, perhaps. Thanks for sharing, Ken

The Poet's readers are such a stranger and to each other spirits are lifted. It is the inevitability of bridges built and crossed over in the exchange that is Poetry. And I for one am glad for not being rushed past and ignored. Have an awesome start to the new week Ken!

In my reading matter of today, this is the third poem to leave me deep in thought once it has ended. It might be the 'fashion' for the day, I don't know. This one of yours, Ken, leaves me thinking, 'Is it going [here]?' For I am not entirely sure where it was meant to lead me, however it did so in a gentle and seemingly beneficent way. Sure beats some of the poetically induced negative emotions that abound these days.
