    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

      This poem about love and friendship is now a keepsake for me. Thank you Milton.

      “Shared … as though there was enough for all” Thank you for those words, Milton. A keepsake for sure.
