…….On Friendship

A River of Words 

A river of words passed between us over the years

Ripples of metaphors, adverbs, exclamations,

Shared points of view, a summary of shared heritage

Formulating the paragraphs to become an assay

Of a friendship based on mutual respect & admiration

That knows not the boundary of punctuation marks

But claims instead, the fiery freedom of language sailing

Free on a river of words, the compass pointing us to

Continents to be conquered and claimed as our own

To be cataloged as maps we give as gifts to our off-springs.
