Once Strangers

Long blue shadows over frozen white lake


milieu of life

averted eyes in each place

feeling so alone


holding nothing

reaching fingertips into space

no one there


a stranger in my home

poetry fills emptiness

reaching for more


kindness grows in words

smiles radiate in the light

darkness recedes

The prompt for today at Carpe Diem is Strangers. Have you felt as if you were a stranger in a familiar place? There is a comfort in the communities that share a common interest.
