I measure my weeks
in Fridays
one thing happens
every Friday
I write an email
to my friend
it is about my week
and about her week past
what we ate
what we wrote
what we cooked
and what we thought
where we went
though less often now
what was easy
and what was hard
what matters
and what doesn't
the people in our lives
and not in our lives
she writes me
every Friday too
I wait for these
for mine and hers
I measure my weeks
in Fridays

The word calendar was brought to you by Janet Mason, my friend whose path and mine kept crossing in work places where we measured our lives in day planners. And we took lunchtime walks in a very old part of town. We are still good friends.
