Dedicated to Silent One. Inspired by his beautiful write, "Together We Are Strong". May it always be so.


True friends are like a special seed that's someday dest to die, to realize the treasured value hidden deep inside. Springing forth a new life made of memories so dear, they're locked inside a sacred heart and kept forever near. Each memory a flower so beautifully in bloom, its fragrance lingers sweetly in the stillness of its tomb. Beckoning in silence every chance to sooth the soul, with salve that heals a gaping wound in time, to make it whole. The flowers slowly vine themselves through hallways of the heart, winding through each chamber filling every single part. Guiding us to all the things a true friendship should be, in reminiscent echoes of the way it used to be. Blessed am I for having found a precious seed as such. No truer friend have I than you, I love you oh so much. One day the time will come for me to lay my seed to ground and pray it's healing flowers in my heart will soon be found. - Jeannie Minor January 2, 2016

Nicely done, once again, Jeannie. Rhyming poetry, with flow, rhythm, intelligent thought, simply and beautifully expressed, so a simple man like me can understand - or, at least, conjure up a meaning that makes sense to me - is the poetry I like best. Too often I read poetry and get lost in words I cannot understand; drown in phrases beyond my comprehension; and get tangled up in unrelated sentences that leave me befuddled. Yours is the kind of poetry I could read forever. Thanks.

Thanks Joe, that means a lot to me. Sometimes I feel like my writes are just not good enough for many here in the "Soup", but I always figured, The easier they are to understand the more the creative imagination can play with it!
