    In order to grow
    a friend quietly listens
    no words are needed

    [my reflection on my best friend and all I can do is to listen...]

    Thanks, B, for your sweet thoughts.

    wind, sleet and rain, bringing you
    the package on time.

    They will get you through
    both the best and worst of days,
    friends -- chosen family.


    (yeh, it's pretty much a copycat, Kiz, but I liked yours, so I thought I would spin it my way. )

    Food to the hungry,
    Sustenance of feeble minds.
    Frown and contribute.
    "It is not the rich man you should properly call happy, but him who knows with wisdom how to use the blessings of the gods, to endure hard poverty, and who fears dishonor worse than death, and is not afraid to die for cherished friends or fatherland."
