Time has pleats.

While years may stretch them out.

They enfold when old friends

meet after years,

touching as if only

hours have passed.

    Poetry is life’s sonnets

    Sung in tunes of the beating heart

    Through pleating words of wisdom

    Into a lace of pearls

    Every kind of poetry

    May be romantic; idealistic; realistic

    Reblogged this on Beatnik Flop and commented:
    What a great metaphor for the phenomena of when two really great friends can meet after years – decades even – and pick up where they left off as if the long absence never existed.

  11. Literally hugged my computer just now.

  12. […] but so much remains the same whenever you meet old friends, doesn’t it?  (It’s that ‘time has pleats’ thing […]
