two strangers

catch sight

of each other

at the very edge

of their own


and both wonder

the same thing.

Yet one

or the other

or both

need to step

into view.

They sometimes do.

    Most people are afraid to take a chance. But sometimes the pull is too great.

    To be seen…. the tangled wilderness of hope and fear.
