A portrait

Long and slender
Her every movement
Deliberate and graceful
 
Composed as
She listens quietly
As you tell your story
 
Her eyes
Corresponding emotion
Engrossed in you
 
Until it’s polite
To take her turn
Share her own
 
If you knew her
You would laugh
When she gets mad
 
True give and take
The healthiest friendship
I have had

(2014)
