The Kindness Of Strangers

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July Covid-19 P.A.D. – Day 9 – “Doing The Dozens”

“Through the years there have been some great motion pictures that have graced the “silver screen”. And these films gave us some memorable quotes. I am offering up twelve (the dozen) of such quotations for your consideration. Choose one as an inspiration and write a poem. As always, I’m not asking for something related to the movie. Write something that is inspired by the quote and get ready for your close up!”

She was scared
to be sick out there.
An attack
was always
possible. Who would help her?
She hoped, a stranger.
