Friend Event

 

For the 400!!!!! poetry prompt at Poetic Asides we’re writing aboutan ‘event’

~

Friend Event

Why do we always wait for an event
to get together
to give a call
to send a card

 

We used to know everything
about each other
crushes
favorite ice cream
music
shoe size
fears

You’ve moved again
I don’t even know your address

It’s not your fault
or mine
life has us spinning off
in different directions

If we’re patient maybe
someday
it will spin us back together

Summer Sisters

Summer Sisters – a triolet

 

They stand across the garden, waving
wearing pretty summer frocks
a little flirty – but behaving
They stand across the garden, waving
blazing sun and storm clouds braving
zinnia, rose, and hollyhocks
They stand across the garden waving
wearing pretty summer frocks


Happy Summer  to all the poets in the Pub!
