The following poem was written for my friend, Kate Lawson. We recently reconnected after many years of separation. I am blessed to have her in my life again.


With Fine Gold Thread


With fine gold thread

we wove a bond so strong

that unbeknownst to us

would last many years

beyond our parting . . .

like an exquisite garment

wrapped in tissue paper

placed in a Metropolitan

gift box tucked away

high on a closet shelf

waiting to be unwrapped . . .

this exquisite gift is ours again

let no separation of miles

divide this gold threaded

timeless bond shared

by two friends
