the gift of friendship

the gift of friendship
note to self

when a friend
comprehends the
deepest plane of you—
the heart space where
no words are required
and delight dances—
you have been given a
precious, shared jewel

time and distance may facet
that gem, augment its grace
how the angles redirect the light
if it’s a true friend, one who
lives in being with you
that jewel cannot be harmed—
it is safe, reliable, eternal

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—please understand that many will be rewritten.

    Hi Skye, I have been enjoying all the poems/not yet poems, but this morning’s really got. It’s really beautiful. I sent to a friend of mine (56 years of friendship). She is also a poet and I knew she would love it. And she did! I am attaching an unpublished poem of hers that she wrote to me a few years ago. I love this poem, too. love, Barbara
