was visiting here in

ann arbor, michigan, usa

from

bunbury, western australia

and 

by chance

 went to a local county beekeepers meeting

with 

some of my family who live here

where he 

came face to face with

his doppleganger.

both with

 yellow shirts

same

glasses 

hair 

beard

eyebrows

smiles

face

age 

mannerisms.

just

crossing paths 

and

finding themselves

in exactly

the same time and place

turned and talked 

and then

went their separate ways once again.

grandie v met a new girl at the pool

her daddy is a soccer coach at the university

who moved here from another country

though i have no idea where

 the language that the family

spoke between them

was beautiful

yet

 i couldn’t identify it

and

it was wonderful

 to watch the girls play

and

communicate

without any difficulty

in two very different languages

neither one speaking the other’s language

but

they played and played

and soon

they were singing

to each other

and

laughing out loud

and

neither seemed to

even realize or care

that they began

with

two different languages

they were simply

two friends

speaking a new one together.

 “the language of friendship is not words but meanings.”
