The Stranger and the Photographer

====================== The Stranger and the Photographer By: Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk) ======================= Sunshine in his eyes A smile on his face Dust on his hair And on his eyebrows Like a lone ranger From outer space Who crossed the desert Riding the wind, Not a horse! And after his journey, To rest his head, He found a place. Everyone was talking Laughing and joking And with their laughter Filling the space But alone he was sitting, Drinking and eating, In utter silence, Minding noone else. Like lightning and thunder, On a hot summer day; She suddenly comes, To shatter his silence, And cross his way, "I'd like to take a picture," She said with a smile, "Of you, If I may!" Waited for no answer, Took a picture, "Thank you!" She said, And went away. Then turned around And said with a sway: Mind you stranger! If destiny wants, She'll have her way, Your path and my path, Will cross again, Somehow, somewhere, someday! ****** Inaam 1993 USA
