Familiarity

I think it was at the Five and Dime
you flipped a dog-eared grin
that was indeed a chapter in time
and our friendship did begin,

together we spent so many days
discovering new things to see
your colorful climactic ways
would always speak volumes to me;

it all just seemed to go so fast
and then there was the end
but the memories will always last
of my funny fast-paced friend.

Bob,

It is a joy beyond words, when one finds a book which bonds tightly:)

Happy Weekend,
Eileen

Cool metaphor, this is what books - and humans - do for us. I love "you flipped a dog-eared grin".

Reference to "chapter", "end", "climactic end" and "volume" are artistic and I liked the way you wove them.

You really know how to write a tight beautifully worded poem--the meter is so spot on! And the words made me smile. Well done!
