Just Passing By

by Maureen Glaude

When strangers pass by
your road in the country
it’s customary
you wave to them,
and they wave back

when strangers pass by
your house in the city,
more often than not
if you wave at them
they’ll look at you as
rather strange

So true. Mind you I find it easy to say hello to strangers who are 40+ in age walking the path behind my house.

I rather enjoy making people slightly uncomfortable by waving at them - makes them think, anyway! Nice write, Maureen.

A good accurate title. Possible alternative: A Passing Thought; adds a little humor to the mix.
