Two Friendship Poems for Day #43


No matter who we are, our friends and family will go through difficult times.  We may not know what to say or how to help, especially when the sadness is deep and wide.  I have come to believe that a kind, quiet, and steady presence is sometimes all we can offer.


It's chilly-rainy here now, but the weeks are creeping toward summer.  This has me thinking about summer friends, those people you know for a brief time but who stay in your heart and journal forever.


Students - fleeting feelings are often good writing topics.  Listen to your heart's rumblings for flashes of understanding and memory, take out a pen, and go.
