Dear Stranger,


While everyone stood


               staring at the view


you sat back against the wall, legs sprawled out in front of you on the pavement, looking up the hill.


I came and sat next to you,


               only to realise,


you had watercolours balanced on your thighs, brushes by your ankles


               and you were using raindrops to wet your brush.


- Love,


(you found art, where no-one else looked)
