I wrote these after our son unexpected stopped by our home. He attends a nearby university and we hadn’t seen him in a little while (about a week, I know that is not long, but it still feels long when you enjoy your children). Our conversation volleyed back and forth like a good tennis match. These poems are as much about conversation as friendship. Is there really much of a difference?
Between friends after a break
Catching up on life.
Words share life and love
Friends speak of things that moved them
While they were apart.
Stories delight us
Nourishing the souls of friends
Bringing joy to life.
