Waiting for my train

a young Muslim woman

walks past, book in hand.

I look again

and note that it is the Qu’ran

and we smile at each other.

Such a simple interaction

yet I am deeply


at the connection of faith

that I receive the gift of tears

to signal

the profound truth at work.

God is one

and wants us

to be one
