I Wonder


i wonder
watching them chat
two easy friends
at a window table on a sunny afternoon...

i wonder...
was it jumping rope
with skinned and knobbly knees
that first connected their
friend souls?

was it shopping for mini skirts
giggling about new, shapelier knees
that knit together their
friend hearts?

i wonder....

random freshman roommate?
the neighbor right next door?
have they been each other's 'person'
since their children were first born?
or
perhaps hers was the hand to hold -
knees bent, head bowed -
when ailing parents shared a hospital room...

as I watch and wonder,
I know it matters not 
when
or where
the seed
the precious seed of friendship
was planted

for it's a seed that knows no season
and looses track of time
plunging deeply
rooting itself in
two soils at once
asking very little
yet
giving so very, very much

  3. Great sentiments. Do you watch Grey's Anatomy ? Your line about being your person reminded me of the special friendship between the characters played by Ellen Pompeo and Sandra Oh :) Love this!

  8. Oh that's sweet. And you're right; it matters not when that first seed of friendship was planted. Some develop over years; some in mere moments.
