Intelligent, thoughtful conversation:

Engaging over events, worldly to personal;

Conveying concerns mundane to aspirational;

Voicing values; lived, challenged, debated;

Hopes and tears, aired, shared;

Spattered with gentle humor.

Laughter launches connection, non-divisive.

Good-natured ribbing,

Revives shared history

Void of derogation.

Absent thinly veiled insults,

Barbs hidden under feathers.

She remembers such discussions.

Memory of them dims,

She hopes, fervently prays

Must, for survival, believe

Their existence remains real.
