A Pair 🃏

Describe a good friend in three words?

My answer:
1. Authentic
2. Understanding
3. Reciprocates

For me, the quality of friends has always been more important than the quantity. I’ve long given up on Facebook since the term ‘friend’ just doesn’t seem to apply. The context for that word just seems ‘off’ in the social media world.

And even if I love it here on wordpress, how well do we really ‘know’ someone from a few posts. Unless there’s communication outside the blog, is this platform enough to determine if someone is a true friend?

There’s so much more to how we choose friends. In many instances we choose the people in whom we can confide when our family members are less than supportive. Our friends fill a specific void, adding richness to our lives in ways we never imagined. Our friends become our extended families and sometimes are closer to us than some of our family members. So how do you define friendship?

Say hello to Jokerswild, the winner of my recent Food Quiz. He’s a new follower to our blog and now the spotlight shines on him! ☺

In his post below, he speaks of the very subjective topic of ‘friendship’. What does friendship mean to you? Read his thought-provoking post… It will certainly inspire you to inspect your current relationships. Enjoy🌷

BRAIN FREEZE

Friends is a word we use everyday.

Most of the time we use it in the wrong way

Now you can look the word up, again and again

But the dictionary doesn’t know the meaning of friends.

And if you ask me, you know, I couldn’t be much help

Because a friend is somebody you judge for yourself.

Some are okay, and they treat you real cool

But some mistake kindness for bein’ a fool.

*A little excerpt from Whodini*

What’s a friend, how long does it take to get one and how do you know when you caught a keeper.  I’ve got friends that I’ve known through winter, spring and fall.  Then I have some I wish I never knew at all but what seals your deal on a friend?

Sometimes, I don’t think friendship has to do with childhood, length of time or helping one in a bind…

Quill & Parchment

maxresdefault-3 by Sakhi

Celebration is to rejoice, and I rejoice in you
You are my home, I reside in your heart
You are my rangoli, a man of thousand shades
The kisses that are left by you on my lips are the sweetest sweet
You are the mural and the muse that’s watching me forever
Your arms are the flower garlands that twist around me
Your love is the lights that twinkle in my eyes
Your breath is the incense of love, spreading fragrance in my life
Your name is the Mantra, summarizing all the Vedas for me in one word
Your body is my splendid fireworks show, lighting up my night
You are my wish, you are the gift, you are the blessing
YOU ARE MY CELEBRATION !

My Celebration ! (Inspiration for this poem)
