Treasure Island

Sarah Sisson

(11-25-1971 / Texas)

A New Friend

Pulling a new friend into
your life is a form of balance.
Its a ripple in the system
that is so beautiful...
a new spirit... a new energy.
Both are souls combined.
When two people compliment
each other, it is a valuable commodity...
to the flow of the world. A chain
of events that bring a happiness
to more than just the new friends.

    I agree, new friends in the dynamic of a life are joyous things, but at the same time I think you underplay the fact that it is difficult to fit them into the scheme of things. Still a very good read. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful......A new perception of friendship.....A new friend is a blessing always but olds are treasures.

    I totally agree. A new voice is a return to hope. 'Knots untie, breathe slowly'. Thanks for the poem, Sarah. (Report) Reply

    This reminds me of the butterfly effect. This is quite an affriming piece, and an agreeable read. I wonder if we're creating ripples. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
