Friends For Life

I hold three magic rocks, in my hand
Rolling them over and over and over
Leaving this reality behind, far behind

The door seems far, far away
Little steps take me to the entrance
Through it, the highway drones a lonely blur
I can look at old photographs, without blinking through tears

Friends I remember glow with fantastic colors!
Purple and peach, burgundy and blue, crimson and cream!
Laughter spills in lollipops when they see me!
I want to savor every flavor!
Show them the peace, our friendship endured!
United again, we skip across the Milky Way!
Catching up with the Comet Hale Bop!
For a fantastic ride!

    I love the beginning of this poem. Without the belief in magic (miracles) where would our lives be. Excellent write and thanks for the trip away from reality. Congratulations on having it featured this week. A. W. Nutter
