Our friendship
means more
than most
things
to me.

Happiness
is piling
two eager
dogs into
the back
of the car,
letting them
run while we
walk in the
ionized air.

On the crest
of Greenbank
Farm, we are
reminded that
we are on
an island,
water on both
sides of us.

This day is

all dog barks
& tennis balls

laughter &
conversation

kale & apple salad,
cauliflower mac & cheese,
topped off with slices
of rich flourless chocolate cake,
embellished with fresh
whipped cream, delivered
by your husband.

We two women,
royalty on the sofa,
sipping our beers
with pinkies up.

A day like today,
a friendship like ours:
this is why good poetry exists.

(Also, gratitude.)
