Friday Fast One

White Flowers, Red Vase

White flowers, red base

Beautiful things tucked all over the place.

When was the last time you stood still

And saw the items on the windowsill?

White flowers, red base

Busy being busy, a nonstop pace.

When was the last time you wrote a note

And by hand, I mean, not remote?

White flowers, red base

Bodies moving, no one seeing face to face.

When was the last time you made the time

And spent it with friends, a visit sublime?

White flowers, red base

Budding goals take place.

When was the last time you just dreamed

And focused on capabilities, life supreme?

 

(For V- and E-, whose company I enjoyed this week, better than any tasks checked – either as ‘done’ or ‘incomplete’.)

    The love of paper and friends
    There’s a connection somehow
    If we could draw their faces while they talk
    Catch them in smile.

    It might make the memory sharpen
    It might make it last

    Or know, one day when these minutes have passed
    That a friend helped along the way
    And stopped along to say
    That you hold a special place in this world
