Poetry, Part II

This poem is one of my favorites, I wrote it ages ago for a dear friend, but it’s a dedication to friendships, generally.

What is a friend?

So it is asked

or thought, perhaps

in ambiguity of design 

I shall try to define mine.

Softness in color

in structure and feeling

or rainbows colliding,

melting and mixing,

yet distinct,

essence their own.

A song hummed

in variety of tones,


smiles, gleaming eyes


All so natural

in every way

no matter what the message be

as long or short

mild or intense

as is necessary.

For you I clap, I jump,

I dance

prance – in plumage galore

in feeling much more.

Sunshine and warmth 

of dewdripped sky


in every measure

am your friend.
