Love of Friends

Written for:  April 2022 PAD Challenge - Day 26

"Write a love and/or anti-love poem."

Solid love for old friends,
acute yearning to spend some time
with those who helped me climb
this steep ladder of mine.  I could
have slipped off rungs of wood
but they understood support.
Mere phone calls come up short.
I wish for days not fraught with ills.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
