Poetry Friday

From the kind invitation of Dr. Carol Wilcox, I join the ritual of so many Bloggers - Poetry Friday. Like a prayer for letting in the pocket jewels of a poet's heart, I so often turn to poems as reader and in my humanness when I need comfort or direction. In honor of one of our favorite poets, Don Graves, Carol and I offer you a wee poem of my own here. Angela, this one is for you, soul sister!


golden friend,
it is
too hard
to say
to you now.
a little longer.
I need
the length
of your days
and want
the playfulness
of your possibilities
with me
within me

Marking a BIG milestone
