Watching, a past-time


People watching.
A past-time.
Have a coffee, watch.
A story in the making.

A love affair.
A fight between lovers.
A break-up, goodbye.
The silent picture.

Make believe.
The imagination.
Mini production.
To watch, to direct.

From the cafe table.
Scanning the room.
A frown, a laugh.
Someone else is scanning.

Our eyes connect.
Caught in action.
Sheepish we are.
We look away.

What are the odds?
Same hobby, same place in time.
You, watching.
I, watching.
