My New Friend


My deck and I

are becoming very good friends

he lets me vent

lets me cry

lets me sing

lets me dance

he has ears to listen

and keeps secrets

oh so very well

he offers views of nature

that fuel my soul

and approves of wine or vodka

being sipped in the cool

evening hours

my new friend offers a lap

where I am totally comfortable

to be myself

we’re going to have

a great relationship
