A friend is like

A friend is like …
A long sunset walk on the beach 
Or a tangy bite of a newly ripened  peach 
A piece of warm double layered chocolate cake 
Or a  quick dive into a cool clear lake 
A long slow naked hug while lying on a soft fuzzy rug 
Or your  heart singing ,unexpectedly hearing the telephone ring
A passing stranger giving a quick warm smile  
Or a barefoot splash in the summer rain , meanwhile
The soothing rains  continue through the night 
Making the  long journey of delight 
Warm and gentle, peaceful and calm 
Like Sleeping thru the night in a gentle balm

A friend is like ….
Cheerful chirping crickets on a clear August  night 
Or laying on the warm island sand waiting for the twilight 
Watching the blinking secrets of fireflies sitting on warm summer grass
 Or gazing at the dark starry skies on a boat with a creaking mast
 Listening to  cool jazz in a darkened café
Or riding snowy wooded lanes in a horse drawn sleigh 
A warm southern night filled with fireflies and cicadas
 Mixed with  the perfume of Lilacs and magnolias 
 Hand in hand walking thru fields of scintillating crystals of snow 
As stars proclaim your love while winter winds blow
