for doxy and her dear friend

what if, at the end,
it was all just haze in a glass
a life of well-tended quiet
savored in little sips
love safely endured

be in me supple spirit
an ever cleansing breath
intimate with life's urgencies
moments held like diamonds
love's risk taken in full measure

Oh my dear Duck....

Don't know what I did to inspire this, but it is lovely---and more true than you could ever have known. One day, I hope I'll have a chance to sit down over a glass of wine and tell you the whole story...

Bless you,

i'll take you up on that. this was oddly one of those things that just kinda sorta mostly wrote itself. didn't know it was for you until it came time to put a title to it...and then i knew...that was a fun moment. you're special.

Dear Friend would like to know if we could use this at our wedding in some way?
