The joy of friendship

I enjoyed this post so much I wanted to share it with you.
With Love,
Russ

Peace, Love and Patchouli

Words read from another world
Oceans away the voice on paper
Fills the soul with smiles.
To shelter the heart with kindness
And sweeping away the rain with the sun,
The umbrella of love held
To warm the soul with the gift
Of friendship.
The star’s light nights
With the show of universal beauty
Twinkling with the need
For wishes to be spoken aloud,
The thoughts of belief
The mystery of dreams
And the fairies woods alive
With mirth and joy.
The dance of this life
Spinning round
Hands held like children,
Hearts filled with the touch
And kindness of friends.

    HI Russ,
    Heatherlee here. First time on a blog thingy. Love this poem Joy of Friendship. I am reading all the books you gave, and have shared some of the insights with friends who think you are an amazing writer. I cherish the time at the restaurant, my girlfriend is still talking about meeting you. You left a lasting impression on us both. Hope to do it again soon.
