friends

I’m feeling a bit disheveled again
as I slop onto the bright white sofa.
Cushions arranged
Table polished
And bite size treats baked. 

Effortless calm
around me
friends from long ago
still connected by years
of tapestry. 

Maybe I should
have brushed, chosen
and cleaned myself
a bit more carefully. 

Surrendered love
around me.
Not for show
Not everyday
Not just the good parts.
But come as you are
nice to see
and sew another stitch.
