familiarity

i'm beginning to know them
a bit smudged at first
like spots on my readers, but 
gradually, after a few gentle rubs
of my fingers between something soft 
like a spritz of sonnet,
they slowly come into focus and
recognition comes to me

i know that one - and that one 
and oh, how i loved the something or other
that that one wrote awhile back 
i don't remember what it was about exactly,
but feel clearly, know, that it touched me
it's hard to know just how that happens,
yet, dear countenance, you are a friend now

i sit by the fire, welling up at your words,
i stand waiting for an elevator to
take me up, and i rise to your eloquence,
how good of you, to take me along
i lie in bed at night, occasional insomniac
and dream of your touch, your clever wisdom
your warm smile crafted across centuries and 
continents to me, a once total stranger, 
but now, devoted friend
