Flash fiction 55 12/31/10

As the crow flies
they live twenty minutes apart-

I stand watching
a man to the north,
sweep a big gray barn

and the man wearing a cowboy hat
to the south,
rides an Appaloosa.

If I brought them together
would they speak of more than horses ?
It is a matter of life and death.

hmmm...reconciliation, if that is what it is can be a beautiful thing...and also making new friendships so either sounds like a win

I want to know what it is that makes "building a bridge" between these two men a matter of life and death? Has Nature upped the ante with an approaching storm? Is it just that the truth for all of us is that we do best when we are not stoic and alone? Joni Mitchell's song comes to mind, "And you know two heads are better than one."
