Strangers bonded by an indivisible compatibility!


By Stanley Collymore


A stranger entering one’s life whether casually,

intentionally or just plain accidentally can be

delightfully pleasing to that person’s inner

psyche but all the same in the durability

of this encounter’s actual existence be

as ephemeral as footsteps noticeably

and rather teasingly caught off guard then most

delicately implanted and skilfully paraded on

the delicate sugar white sands of a veritably

fascinating and incontestably paradisiacal,

tropical beach prior to a progression of

exuberant waves amusedly watched

over from a peerless cloudless and

sapphire sky by a radiant and all

seeing sun sportively and very

permanently expunge those

sculptured footprints lying

in the sand one by one.


Or else that stranger could well be a providential

someone whose awe-inspiring, unfaltering and

enduring presence will be synonymous to the

ubiquitous coconut palm trees picturesquely

and harmonizingly garrisoning that same

pearly white and sandy beach with their

multi-colourful and perpetual swaying

rhythm adding their own distinctive

allure to the hypnotically powerful but completely

and characteristically zephyr-like cadence of the

Transatlantic Trade Winds whose recognizable

presence is both tangible and everywhere to

be seen; and correspondingly translated

into human terms is exactly the same

unrivalled effect that you artlessly

but manifestly unpretentiously

bring about in me Kathleen.

Author’s Remarks:

Unpredictability is a common and natural feature of life and even though circumstances don’t always work out as one would like the challenges that they can and often at times do present, can nevertheless if sensibly taken on board, astutely analysed, learnt from and the results practically implemented into one’s personal life schedule quite often make the world of difference to the quality of one’s own life and how that positive outcome might possibly and for the greater good of all concerned significantly or even permanently influence others both in the short and long term.


But there are also unscripted or wholly unforeseen circumstances too that appear completely out of the blue and whose very presence can and invariably does trigger a massive and uninhibited responses that discernibly, instinctively and rapturously extensively dismantle the usual social convention of wary scepticism that there is and unapologetically in its place institutes instead a hearty welcome. And so it would seem Kathleen that you and I were jointly destined to be an integral part of this same invitingly, stimulatingly interlocking, markedly unrestrictive, openly enterprising and thoroughly likeminded 21st Century company of trailblazers, and delightedly to which I’m most glad to add: “Welcome onboard!”
