random acts
woven into day's tapestry
stranger, now friend
door held wide
you turn with a smile
i pass through
stumble & fall
red-faced, books embarrassed sprawl
your hand reaches out
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~cold hands
accept steaming cup of tea
heart warmed
kind eyes
meet across crowded room
weary trudge
porch-front beckon of friend
sit a spell~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
kindness of strangers
in unsuspecting moments
desert oasis

I wouldn't be able to choose which one speaks to me the most. Wonderful - photos and haiku.

Ah, the red-faced sprawl speaks to me! When we most need a friend, we find one! Such miracles. Thank you for naming them.

Kindness is found in so many places. I enjoyed each of these. My hands and heart have been warmed by many a cup of tea. So true.

Nicely done. I think I like the door held wide the best... I felt like the words invited me through. Cool.
