On Friendship

There is nothing quite as lovely
as the exquisite understanding
of a dear friend.

For such knowing eyes,
that see the world and all its splendor....

For such adept ears,
able to recognize vast genres of rhythm and rhyme...

For such skilled hands,
capable of turning the ordinary into extraordinary...

For all these gifts
to so graciously turn towards sisterhood,
and simply offer:

"I see you.
I hear you.
I'll take your hand and walk with you".

...this is artistry at its best...

thought of these, j.

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”

– C. S. Lewis

"What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it."

– C. S. Lewis
