Friendship - Brenda Arledge’s Prompt

I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.



I very much appreciate Brenda Arledge’s prompt and more importantly her encouragement. Friendship is the new prompt, and I think that is a wonderful prompt. Friendship brings many thoughts to your head as you think of your friends and what they mean to you.

There are many aspects of a good friendship, like trust, being honest, sharing secrets and having someone just to listen when you need them. My best friend is also in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), which is an interest we share. We were also both RNs, so we have so much in common.

Friendship brought many characteristics to mind, so writing poetry using some of those characteristics was not too difficult. I really like this prompt from Brenda.


Acrostic Poem About Friendship

For I love our wonderful times together

Rich is our time as our friendship grows

I will treasure the time with you forever

Enjoying the humor and laughter too

No one else could ever take your place

Doing the many fun things we pursue

Sharing my private secrets with you

Happy I am when we meet at the club

It is always a pleasure the things we do

Pushing along as we walk through life

Ode to Friendship

Friendship adds so much to our lives

As we share our laughter and secrets too,

We go shopping and out to a good lunch

Plans and dreams we will always pursue

Our time spent together is so much fun

Friendship is honest and adventurous too,

Our playful times are memorable as well

As soon as we met I immediately knew

You would be that wonderful friend

Hanging out together we stick like glue
