common grounds

strangers with
books, coffee
in common
desire to connect
kindness makes
comfortable

hold the door
pass the sugar
give directions
to restrooms
or mystery section
just smile

someone shares
what they normally
wouldn’t --
I’m tired
isn’t this
a lovely place?
I need a good read
son loves coffee shops
coming to town
next week

people, like
ice cubes
in humanity’s
warmth
melt a bit
on the floor

who they are
what they think
puddles around them
soaked up
by a fresh sponge
willing
to listen

And poetry... haven't seen that from you in a while.

I'm loving the title and that last stanza in particular (grin)! Welcome back, you. :)
