A Life Together (part-2)

 
She
brought up tri-lingual in a foreign land
spoke seven languages
and simultaneously translated other people’s dreams …
 
He
brought up in strange boarding schools
refined rough nuts and bolts
‘till they resembled acupuncture needles …
 
When they met (aged 40 and 41)
they slowly left behind
the nightmare shadows
of wars and missionaries
 
and wove gold
clothing themselves in creative possibilities,
establishing a new home
formed by two people looking in the same direction
 
brightly decorated
with open gratitude for each other,
and cultivated a garden of beauty  
fruiting abundantly with loving-kindness.
