An Old Salt

skipper the tabby cat

i saw an old friend today.

He was thinner than i remembered him,

but his eyes still glittered with the gold of a true pirate’s treasure,

and his song was the purr of the sea.

.

i saw an old friend today

in the arms of another friend.

we sat together

on a pink painted bench

and looked out over a sea of possibilities.

.

I saw an old friend today

and dreamed of the future.
