Look up and Smile

Two strangers,
Walking in opposite directions,
A meeting
Is inevitable

Then what happens…

They near each other:
One looks down
At his treading feet
In frozen silence
As they pass.

Or perhaps…

Two strangers
Walking in opposite directions,
A meeting
Is inevitable.

Then what happens…

They near each other:
Both look up
With smiling faces;
Passing greetings
Are exchanged.

And what happens…

Two people walk away
With a tiny heart-place
Warmed and glowing,
From their moment
Of shared humanity.
