Communication Spat

One bows,

An invitation to play…

But the other,

Confused and not knowing the language…

Spits and hisses in reply.


Then, as if, in apology,

Or perhaps curiosity,

Attempts a bow of her own….

Only to be greeted by barking.

Learning each other’s language can be difficult…

But necessary if we are to live together in peace and not pieces.
