Seeing My Old Friend Carol

after 30 years we met for dinner in Sarasota

said what we could she took care of Stan

dementia for ten years he was always Stan she said

died in October now her life another life

life without Stan still friends after years

we haven’t been in touch

at dinner we did our best

telling one another our story of life

still friends



Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. Dear Esther,

    I would comment every day on how much I enjoy your poems, every one a small window into your life, every one ending with a surprising insight – I am happy to have found you.

    I wish you all the best for 2019
