Alike

The wind has yet to blow
two feathers along the same path
or tassel twin snowflakes to the ground
Nor will the wind ever see
similarity
in all the clouds it pushes around
The same applies to the twin-less waves
it's carried
and yet to carry
who've crashed
and yet to crash
upon no two similar grains of sand
Amidst all this failure
to bring together
no two objects alike
It's a wonder that finally
it's brought together you and me
and managed to get it right
