Strangers - Extraños






strangers in the day

in the night and eye to eye

love at first sight

I could not recognize

when he passed by my side



extraños allá extraños aquí

y en la quebrada del ají

amor a primera vista

no dejó ninguna pista


(I wanted to do a spanish version "quebrada del ají" we say when we mean an unknown place...)

Sandra, your poem rings a little bell with things in one of my other lives. It is a very nice 'stranger' poem.
This also reminds me of the Lynrd Skynyrd song,
"Little Girl What's Your Name?"

"...
Well, the police said we can't drink in the bar
What a shame
Won't you come upstairs girl
And have a drink of champagne

What's your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
For there ain't no shame."

I am not for sure why.
