Strangers


Music fills her ears
A tune only she can hear
Dancing in the rain

Coming from behind
Unawares he catches her
This tall dark stranger

Her movement ceases
Gazes steady, hearts pounding
A hand extended

Their hands touch lightly
Whirling to an unknown beat
His song joins with hers

Lost in each other
The rhythm guiding their steps
Drops fall from the sky

Slowly their steps cease
With one last glance, they part ways
Two strangers once more
