Friends by chance

I saw an interesting picture in an impromptu poetry prompt yesterday, and decided to write something about it. I scribbled my poem on a piece of paper and it was ready in 15 minutes. 🙂  Here’s the picture and the poem. 😉


Friends by Chance

Strangers from afar
Chance encounters
Of broken hearts
And hollow souls
Disenchanted minds
Pouring their hearts out
Sharing disappointments
Drowning their sorrows
Discovering kindred spirits
Becoming lifelong friends

For week #68 of Haiku Horizons, the word prompt was ‘trust’. Luckily, I remembered to write it. I think I missed last week’s haiku challenge.

Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore


The trust invested
By those who matter to you
Is to be cherished
