I Saw A Friend Last Night

I saw a friend last night.

It was four years ago

It was yesterday

We ate

We drank

We talked

Oh, we talked

We forgot

We remembered

listeninglisteninglistening

We walked from room to room

We talked from time to time

Chicago, Ohio, LA

History

Sauvignon Blanc

Ties that bind

Pinot Noir

With men

Without men

Gals.

Women

Together

Artists

Loners

“Why is that important?”

 

I Facetime’d with a friend.

World class Besties

Coast to coast

Ah me

So long

Family.

Peoples’ Express

P.U.S.’s

New York City

Newark Airport

Dead poinsettas

Nuns in buses

Step son’s phone bills

Step son’s outrage

Dogs.

Loss.

It just didn’t work out.

Time keeps ticking

Always, we will be.

 

I had a visit from a friend.

Student

Teacher

Mentor

Me.

Puzzles

Two minds,

One moment.

I am so proud.

 

I got a letter from a friend.

In my hands

Time taken

Paper clippings

Downtown doorways

“Creativity with content

At the service of the soul.

I am interested in the spirit and the sound….”

 

I got a voicemail from a friend.

To tell me

To thank me

To reach through wire with

Words

Power

gratitude

honor

Like minds.

 

I got a text from a friend.

‘I remember.’Screen Shot 2017-08-19 at 8.55.17 PM

 

I woke up with a light heart.

I woke up eager to face the day.

I woke up loving to my husband.

I woke up gracious to a guest.

I woke up.

 

I saw a friend last night.
