As I Wandered

We met
as I wandered
calmly in a
lonely moment
on a silent
sandy lanscape
far too busy
for two fussy
people to be
taking time for talking.

Just a glance
was all I took
and you were gone
before I realized
you were a person
of a certain kind
I could have spared
a second or two
just to give
direction to ...
another perfect
moment squandered
as I wandered
home alone.

  5. This taps into the notion that has always bothered me: Have I yet met all the people who will be significant to my life? Before I began blogging, I had no idea the world of friends that awaited me. Sometimes it is worth the risk to talk to strangers.
