The Solace of Crowds

The solace of crowds

Can be enormous

When they’re friendly

The kindness of crowds

Can enfold you in shared love

The friendliness of crowds

When strangers laugh together

Crowds out the fear

Crowds out the remembrance of terror

No bolt from the blue today

Just happiness

Good cheer

No fear

Just laughter


No tears here

Just a recognition of the beauty

We all share
