Wordless Wednesday – “Friends”

For my not quite so Wordless Wednesday…

a poem!
****
On a dark Wyoming hill
sits a pump jack all alone.
Red lights shimmer upon it
and give a sense of home
friends1
To a tiny deer perched high
upon its glowing back.
An unlikely team of spirits
in the deep and endless black.
Together they make a beacon
to travelers near and far.
This time of year rings special
for friendships where’re they are.

A shoulder to rest upon
while searching for a goal,
Is the best some friends can offer,
it’s the reason for their soul.
But to rest a minute there
with twinkling lights ablaze,
Is what we all should hope for
at the ending of our days.
A good friend to help you there,
Where’er you want to go,
Or one to keep you company
in the dark and cold and snow.
