Sometimes lives meet like rivers,
far from source
brought together by geography,
by the chances of topography.
Converging in a whirl of soul and water joined,
in waves and eddies and swirling sediments
tributaries join and twist and turn and hurtle on towards the sea.
Friendship and love and familiarity are the sentiments,
together making lives more interesting,
more complete, more glittering.
the journey is the richer.
