It’s time once again for TJ’S Household Haiku Challenge. I’ll let him explain in his unduplicateable style… you will find him here
His name was Chris
I have chosen to go with Twins. My brother and I are twins. Although he passed two years ago, I still find him in the mirror every morning as a reminder. We were not identical twins, only fraternal, but there were enough ‘identicals’ to make us more brothers than brothers usually are.
In our similarities though there were dark and light differences too. We being of the same, we’re sometimes very different. The guy who fixed our A/C last night had my brother’ name and I immediately thought of him. I miss him very much.
For a more pensive take
Is it strange to you too how the word Individual conveys ‘one’ yet also implies ‘undividable’? I guess it means the most basis unit, unable to be divided, but it could also be applied to a society (or brothers) that sees itself as unable and unwilling to be divided by our differences.
In an election season here in the US where both of the Major Parties are using differences of all kinds to drive wedges and demonize their opponents…
- can we see how much we are the same?
- Can we choose to be unable and unwilling to be divided?
- Can we say with the founders, “we many are one”?
I sure hope so… we need to for a change.
My Entry for this week for your approval. -kia
We both, two of one
Are we simply echoes two?
