Poetry Monday

Poetry Monday is the brain child of Diane of On The Alberta Montana Border.  You can find her in my sidebar.  Each week Diane provides us with a theme which we can use or totally disregard...the important thing is to write.
This week the prompt or theme is 'friendship'.  Let's give it a go shall we?

Even though I'm cranky,
not known for being swanky,
and tend to hide out
when there's folks about,
next day I'm kind of surly
if I don't retire early,
cooking is not my strong point
and I seldom clean the joint,
he still wants to keep me around
as by our oath we two are bound.
He says he likes me any way
and he's happy that I want to stay.
to 'overlook' he makes his biz
because that's just what 'friendship' is.

Why not tell us what your idea of friendship is and what it means to you...or, just go off the rails and write about anything.  We all do that now and again.


  1. Love your take.
    Friendship is rare, and precious.

  2. Friendship is caring for another...knowing, understanding and accepting their imperfections.

  3. That describes friendship pretty well.

  4. Marriage is the best and hardest (at times) friendship there is.

  5. I love this. Marriage is definitely the best friendship there is.

  6. My favorite lines: "cooking is not my strong point
    and I seldom clean the joint,"

  7. There’s something about marrying your best friend, isn’t there?

  8. Echoing Arleen - marriage is the best and sometimes hardest friendship . . . but worth it.

  10. Oh, my word, that's lovely! Just read it to my Husby!
    That IS what friendship is!

  11. I thought this was brilliant!

    All the best Jan

  12. Great poem, because it's so true. Warts and all, friends accept each other just as they are.


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
