Silly Haiku Wednesday

Join the fun!

It's Silly Haiku Wednesday again over at Jenn's blog, and the theme is friendship. While I am frequently a silly friend myself, and am lucky enough to have many silly friends (love, love the silly friends), this week's theme doesn't foster a silly vibe -- just a true one. Here are poems for three friends:

Make new friends, but keep
The old. One is silver but
The other is gold.

My oldest friend -- she
Seems more like my blood sister.
No pal is truer.

"I, too, sister!"

Sisters of the heart,

She thinks like me, laughs like me --
Loves me all the tim

My sister -- my best
Friend. We've lived it together;
We share scars and joy.
Sister, friend, sister --
Sister, friend. Friend. Sister-friend.
Sister. Friend. Sister.

  1. Well said! I love the picture of the old ladies - hope I have my "gold" friends in my golden years.

  2. OMG how did you write so many haikus? I am lucky to get one!

  3. "I, too, sister!" xxoox, ~Coleen

  4. I like the first one, do you know the next verse...

    New made friends, like new made wine, age will mellow and refine.

    I love that, I think there's another one too something like; a circle's round, it has no end, that's how long I want to be your friend.

  5. Love the last one! :)

  6. I have never met
    my new friend Liz. However,
    we think the same things.

  7. Ok,Maureen -- now you're making me cry.

  8. Haiku poetry
    is fun to read and write, and
    does not have to rhyme.

    Counting syllables
    is helped by employing one's
    hand some fingering.

    Gee, Liz, I wish I knew how to center this comment the way your photo-married haikus are!
