THERE SHE WAS



There she was alone
Sitting against the window
In the middle of the bus
Reserved off in her own thoughts
Dressed dark and different
From some faraway culture
It wasn’t till I sat next to her
That I realized she was praying
I felt a bubble of peace and love
Exuding from her heart
Her devotion was palpable
In the midst of commotion
She was transported
And I was touched she let me
Somehow share in her 
Private ritual of reverence

A lovely poem about what must've been a wonderful experience; you can often feel the energy from those in prayer, as well as, those who are very spiritual; I've met a few of these. Well penned.

To live with faith in our daily lives makes us a better person. Religion is only the fuse.
