Beautiful days of escape in big old Jersey Shore cottage, 
Wide porches under striped awnings the ocean crashing near
The weather perfect

Surrounded by a bevy of friends, chatting, eating, of course
Painting. This year I slip easily, gratefully into the warmth
Of good companions.

This evening I shall give myself some time 
To stay in touch, to write a few sweet words
To good friends

Who all live far away. Thus reminding myself for 
This time, while choosing life in beautiful isolation I
So need them.

The wheat is turning from spectacular
blued green as it ripens to a wonderful
hazed yellowy sage. 

The dogs and I have walked the perimeter
Under a sky marbled by clouds and now rest
Beneath that pine.

Oh this night to have your presence, even if only 
Ghosting in my mind...better company than any others,
Even only memory.

Heard today an old friend of ours
Is in for rough times. Cancer found,
Hopefully in time
