The Treasure of Friendships

Friendships are formed in many different ways, some are by mutual choice and others by chance. A sincere comradery will last forever and always while a few have turned into passionate romance. Confidants often find themselves telling each other the darkest secrets and the desires of their lives, things they don't share with a sister or a brother. Silly or naughty plans that only a friend contrives. But what defines a friend? Is it a confidant or a lover? Someone online with whom we have good chats and quickly makes us want to know more and discover what's in their belfry, secretly hoping it's not bats! Friends offer a shoulder to cry on and an ear attuned when troubles are too hard for one to bear all alone. It's important to help a friend who's feeling marooned, and all they need to do is make a call on the phone. Through understanding, we acquire a discerning heart, one that sorrows over sad times and rejoices together whether friends are always together or far apart. The best buddy is there in times of stormy weather. The word 'friend' only has six letters. It's a small word, but if I call you 'ally' it's because you have my respect. The friendship bond causes emotions to be stirred. I'd do anything for a treasured friend when we connect. August 5, 2022 Friendship Contest Sponsor: Beata Agustin

It's so nice to be reading your exquisite poetry again, Jenna. As usual, this one captures the heart & soul of what friendship is all about and I'm lucky to be in your friendship "circle" - even if only on the poetic fringes. Even Planet "X" needs to feel connected to something...or someone, somewhere. Cheerios, Terry
