Reading Books Next to a Fire

IMG_6639

A lovely afternoon
would be sitting
with a friend
and reading books
next to a raging fire

Tell me…
What books would you bring?
Stack them here
So I can pick them up
One by one
And read
What delights you

Best friends—
(is this meaning defined
in dictionaries—
a blank term
in my lexicon of life and words)

I would take these afternoons (imaginary)
and remember them, record them
I would take the flowers (imaginary)
and press them in between the pages
and read between the lines, where petals
have long since faded.

Is yellow the color of hope?
