november travels - and then to seattle town

19th to 22nd
we stayed with my friend and her husband
and for the first time
we smiled in each other's eyes
and I was surprised
at how natural it seemed,
an ancient rhythm
that I had always known.

we talked my voice away,
and saw landscapes
books, baby,
drank tea, shed tears,
baked, felt snow falling

and now I miss her
like a beautiful gilded book of poetry
that you need to hold close to your breast

she like a sparrow too,
and quickly away again
