An Answer to My Poem “Green”

I posted a poem titled ‘Green’ a few days ago and this morning received this from a friend in Denver.

Can we do one called Snow or White?

SNOW

its all snow
is that snow ?

yes
and that?
yes
so all that white is snow?
yes
why?
because its April

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Needless to say we are suppose to have more SNOW to night.

Thanks, Sharon. I hope spring comes to Colorado soon! Love you!

The Company of Women

Peaches

I seek the company of women
The understanding of knowledge
Deep in the history of our cells.
The changing face of the moon
Phasing from light to darkness
To fullness again
Round, ripe and mellow.
Holding in our bodies the process of change
Sisters of fruit and seed
With hushed wisdom of ancient mothers
We coven and cloister and coffee together.

Faithless Friend

Faithless Friend

Love never ends, you know.
Though we do not speak
And will avert any glance
If we should ever meet
Again,
Faithless friend.
Lightning striking,
A friendship forged
Over time, not in steel,
But iron pyrite,
Fools gold.
Confidences thought kept
Found to be worthless fodder
For amusements of others.
And then the shrug
Of a cold shoulder
Where once hot tears
Were shed, and imagined
Comfort found.
Not so,
As the grief
Of a broken vow
Eased,
Pain gave way to forgiveness
(not asked for but freely given).
So released,
Faithless friend,
With a reminder-
Love never ends
And still remains,
And will forever, faithfully.
