Strangers pass in the night

The woman tosses back the rest of her drink
Grabs her coat and swipes her bag on her way out the door.
Whistling a happy tune as she heads out into the night.
Opportunities await, lights reflect, shadows lay in waiting

Life awaits her. She begins her descent into the world of night
The street lights glimmer and glow around her
Lending a false feeling of gentleness and softness
Enveloping her, surrounding her with their creative possibilities

She rounds the corner, reaches into her bag, to begin her work
Her work keeps her out quite late most nights. Men drive by and whistle and honk
Some even shouting through open windows,
She smiles and waves

Looking around her, she see’s possibilities,
Looking up she sees a youthful couple wrapped in a heated embrace
She raises her arm, sets her sights and SNAP!
The moment is forever caught on film.

The SNAP fills her with warmth, pride, joy
This is her work, this is her being, this is her very soul
She turns and spies a shadow playing with light
She raises her arm, sets her sights and SNAP!
There midnight trist caught on film.

Moving foward on silent feet she waits, anticipates,
Her muscles twitch, her finger itches, her eyes burn for that special moment
They surround her yet elude her, they play hide and seek amongst the buildings
She yearns to hear that joyous sound

Catching a movement up ahead she turns
She spies a stranger coming upon her
She waits, filled with anticipation
Will this be a moment? Or simply a passing stranger?
Not wanting to stare she glances aside and spies a flickering light
She raises her arm, sets her sights and SNAP!
Light is forever caught.

She glances forwards, spies her stranger
Their eyes meet, he smiles, she snickers in pure delight
he slows, she falters,
She looks away, and takes another picture
The flash is bright, the stranger flinches,
Stumbles, trips and begins his descent

She turns quick as the very light
He grunts, he falls
She raises her arm, sets her sights, and SNAP!
A stranger in the night forever caught.
