We waltz throughout natural rendezvous
Untethered energy allays patterned view.
Look me in the eye, do you reconcile,
We might share humanity, peace, awhile.
Walk past the shelter, encounter, a chance
candid when shared, a friendly glance
might in immediacy become a threat
little regard for sordid reality’s vet.
Common ground when once ago passion fall,
idle hands will reach, quiet, soothe the pall
of strange reckoning, a mindset ideal
to knowing, to loving, a timestamp seal.
For when we do imagine calm release,
Perhaps we encounter another’s peace.
