A Diary One (La Isla Bossa Nova)

Rating: 3.2

(dedicated to Fay Slimm, a great poet at poemhunter)

we're just very direct with each other
we give each other information in
as clear and honest a way as possible

it felt like no time had passed in the way
that we're so comfortable
with each other personally

we've been friends for such a long time
and we knew what boundaries we have with each other personally
and we knew that we could get great stuff out of each other

take my hand
and take my whole life too
what a wonderful world

Ahmad, it is always a treat, a pleasure to read anything you write and share with us. Your tribute, your thanks to Fay Slimm is very much appreciated. Loved the glimpse into an actual exploration of an on-line developing/developed friendship. I loved the expressed pleasure but benefitted from your mature consideration of keeping the friendship within realistic and beneficial boundaries. Yes, as you delicately described, we, people, can be friends. The shared gift of creativity is the bonding material. Beautiful and natural. Carol
