Strangers but Friends

I seen the world
Through
Stranger’s eyes
Eyes that I have not seen
Never met
But they have become my friendly guides
Lands and oceans, mountains and valleys
I have travelled through their eyes
Ever thankful that from the comfort of my home
I have travelled far and wide
Thank you my friends
Let the words flow
Even if we never meet
Know that the bond is strong
Your words speak to me
In a way that my eyes
Will never be able to see
Before the inevitable happens
And my words stop
Let me say loud and clear
Thankful ever
To meet you all
Your words enlighten me
An education that is free
Knowledge I shall cherish
Strangers you are, true
But I shall never have
Friends better than thee


Dedicated to all my blogger friends, even to those that I may not see eye to eye.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

    1. Glad that you like it.
      I was reading a post today about Iguazu Falls posted by Don Massenzio and I realized how much my world is being enriched by people I have never even met but I feel like I know them intimately. The poem is a result of that feeling, sort of spontaneous.

  1. Glad we met here, Pranabaxom! I actually love that I cannot see what anyone here looks like. When I read, often I cannot tell the sex, race, or religion of the writer. If I am touched by your words, does any of that matter? It reminds me of the many ways we are all alike and connected. 🙂
