Archive for the tag “friendship”

and then we laughed like nothing had ever happened

they swept in from the northwest
just as the dipper came into focus
wings spread wide and soaring
revealing ever brighter lights

releasing scarlet and golden petals

manipulated by a friendly wind
whistling and

I heard from an old friend
there is still magic in the skies
and if you give yourself plenty of time
it will one day make you cry

may two thousand sixteen
