Happy are We #poetry

piglet and winnie

we walked down the trail

of hopefuls and dreams

skipping to made-up tunes

holding balloons full of imaginings

the world floated below in color

our feet nudged the puffy sky

there is so much of wonder

let us open our eyes

take my hand as they higher lift 

magical and so much in store

as we rise above the hills

panoramic and so much more

never extinguish mind images

where  children laugh and play

melody bobs with the carousel

we love the ride every day

we walked down the trail

of hopefuls and dreams

skipping to made-up tunes

letting go balloons full of imaginings

Friends

Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Long to Belong #poetry #photography #friends

Two, Never the same

 somehow always connected

your laugh is mine

something distance can never claim

the waves of life crash

and then recede

carrying tales of long ago

on pages past

As I sat by his side

I saw your eyes

so full of other worlds

soon carried out by the tide

 we’ve had to endure

life’s many storms

 friends bound by fate

 forever sisters

(of that I am sure)

Thanks to Poet’s United for the prompt Best Friend. Last week I had the honor of sharing sweet memories with my best friend’s dad. A man (and family) who made my life whole.

 

“We’ll  be Friends Forever, wont we, Pooh?” Piglet asked.

“Even longer.” Pooh answered.
