Out of the blue

he burst into my consciousness

with an abrupt chest-to-chest bump

producing a startling and curious mixture

of surprise and joy in me


When just moments later

another total stranger

with arms outstretched

and mischievous eyes

out of the blue

posed the unnecessary

question and response

that caused our ensuing smiling hug


And the two more other witnesses

to these strange encounters standing by

betrayed their pleasure at witnessing

this unfolding drama

of a couple of trusting humans

out of the blue simply connecting


All because I out of the blue

wore my latest sign around my neck

as I entered the local Home Depot

to make a purchase

or to connect?


The sign reads:
