Beautiful Stranger

Who was this person? I knew I’d never seen her face before A face embraced with pretty’s kiss, and polished with grace’s allure This one who artfully added her shade, to this canvas of many hues I gather she’s probably a resplendent red, infused with beauteous blue I stood there lost within her presence, overcome with what I was shown It was truly a fight to retrieve my heart, stolen by this lovely unknown Isn’t life sublime? You can find a gem, in an everyday common place As was the day, I encountered a stranger, with beauty surrounding her face Written in Texas -17 JUL 2014

Ha! You've shopped at the Lowes here in town too LOL! Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the poem. It's great to hear I was able to capture that small but special moment we've all had, when we see someone for an instant that takes the very air right out of your lungs.
