Missed Encounter

It starts with a simple hello
A handshake and name exchange
Same language, different accent 
 Two cities globally apart

His voice blankets the sound of crowded platforms
Listen intently ignoring the hustle and bustle

Story-tellers, passionate writers
We take a journalistic view of the world
Encouraging ideas emerges
Spellbound by the perspective

Time stands still

 Unaware of the camera's flash
 Stand smiling at each other
  Green eyes stare into mine
 Quietly take in the moment
The train arrives

Brief handshake with an embrace
He walks on the train and waves goodbye
Waving back I'm left to wonder
What could've become from this missed encounter
