tai chi shot

I was on the bus going home
we passed two basketball courts alongside each other
on one court a man was doing tai chi
on the other a man was shooting baskets
the man doing tai chi had one arm up in the air with the hand hooked
and the other arm out to the side
at the same moment the man who had just released a jump shot was in a nearly identical position
After a couple of stops I got off the bus and walked home

    Thanks, Patricia! I was on the 7 bus going down Gottingen past the basketball courts when I witnessed that momentary coincidence, that instant resonance. It was startling.
