What better plan
for the day
than a visit
with a dear, long-time
friend now living far away.
Much talk,
a flock of Robins at the feeders;
Eastern Bluebirds at the water bowl;
lingering at the table,
exchanging insights from latest-read books,
a Road Runner!
exploring along the alpaca pen fence.
Too soon,
afternoon shadows deepen;
one more time,
a visit to cherish.
