lenten journal: keepsake

keepsake

there are some nights
when the sky turns
the color of friendship
and fades into the crisp
darkness of gratitude

friends old and new
around our table shared
food and stories love
and laughter as though
there was enough for all

we’ve washed the dishes
saved the leftovers and
turned out the lights
except those we always 
leave on in the kitchen

spring will soon come
and summer will follow
footprints will fade
but not this indelible
wisp of memory

Peace,
Milton
