Two Strangers

How much peace is in an evening walk
of two near strangers at the bay
when they hold hands and gently talk
even if their peace – has gone away

How much truth lies there, for a little while
when of human needs the most divine
between a thoughtful nod and then a smile
is shared by eyes like yours and mine 

The sea is whispering quietly below
her waves are pushing light shadows ashore
we inspired each other – and smiled even more
Our shadows, let’s pick them up before we go
because the moonlight won’t restore
those shadows and this instant, never more
