My Moody Friend

She could be harsh sometimes cruel

like the character in the book we discussed

in book club, negative ugly judging.

But she had extraordinary qualities too

a capacity for loving and accepting

the quirks of those she loved that

far outstripped my own

the playfulness of a child

a consummate sense of humor

a genius for voices accents mimicry

incredible talent with words.

Slammed the phone down in

my ear more times than I can number

and yet I counted myself lucky

to say she was my friend.
