Friends’ Friday 47
Nearing bittersweetness. We have seven more weeks of this adventure together. I create six haiku/haiga a week, and my friends contribute to the seventh day, Friends’ Friday. I celebrate today, all of the friends who contributed their poetry throughout the year. What a gift it has been to receive and share your poetry. I hope in these next few weeks, you will seize the moment and give it at least one more go in contributing to Friends’ Friday – looking forward to hearing from you.
With that said, many thanks to Kris K (not me) for sharing her poetry this week. There is a funny story that she remembered after finishing the poem which she gave me permission to share with you. First of all, her poetry is lovely, thank you Kris. Secondly, she and I were snowshoeing several years ago in northern Pennsylvania. We had finished a wonderful several hour hike, and got back to the road. I took off my snowshoes and went to the car and she took off her snowshoes and was walking to the car behind me. Something was flapping and she stopped and all of a sudden gasped and laughed. The entire sole had separated from her shoe. We both had a good laugh and she continued to take off the other boot. I continued towards the car and she began to laugh hysterically. Here, both of her soles separated from her boots at the same time. How is that for timing? Can you imagine it happening to both boots on the same trip? Well, the story ends well, she found a shoemaker in the state of Washington who repaired her shoes, and they are as good as new.
Hope you enjoy her poetry and a picture of her boots – pre new soles!
