- The confluence of the Blue Nile and the White Nile
- Numberless little streams overlap and interlace with one another.
- "a gathering, flowing, or meeting together at one juncture or point."
- a fleeting glance; fugitive hours; rapid momentaneous association of things that meet and pass; a momentary glimpse.
- "Shanghai presents a unique mix of East and West as well as new and old in wining, dining and merry-making."
- The confluence of the Rhine and the Mosel
- His secret consists in being able to find the exact point where they meet in their greatest disproportion.
- An open circular place where several streets intersect.
- "There were human beings enough, and enough of highly wrought and symphonious feeling,"
- As the earth thaws,numberless little streams are formed to overlap and interlace with one another(Joyce Carol Oates)
