“YOU MAY SEE A STRANGER…”

 

(scroll down for YouTube video )

 

What color are your eyes

Blue as the skies

Or as dark as the soil

(The source of your

Bi-weekly paycheck)?

We both wear sunglasses

Walking across the garden center

From opposite ends

Converging

Glancing at each other

Suddenly still, staring

Through UV lenses

There is a visible, sizzling bond

Despite the tint

Shading the expression

The magical “look”

And the color of

Each other’s eyes

Sensing the surprise

Of timeless recognition

Until a customer

Comes between us

And I move on, thinking

“I only imagined the violins…”
