Friendships fade.
Hands part.
Rowboats separate,
Sailing independent
of each other.
The ocean of life
becoming wider,
more inhospitable.
I have lost so
many
friends,
losing touch as we
chose separate paths,
separate journeys.
Yet, the memories...
I will always have
the Jewel-like
memories.
Every last one,
opalescent within
my hands.

Gil: I would like you to read my novel and get your opinion. 
Ernest Hemingway: I hate it. 
Gil: You haven't even read it yet. 
Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer. 

I love this poem—very easy to relate to, especially now for me, at a time when I'm breaking from both this site and the friends I made here (as well as thinking about the friends I made here who left long ago). Very relatable for everyone, I think

I was just sitting in the car, looking out on our west-side deserty mountains and the clouds, as we were driving home from a family reuion of which we were not actual blood relatives, and it kinda just came to me.

I guess I must write about things that everyone feels :) The picture is beatiful, the colors are so clear.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.

I can also relate to this poem!

I love your picture too. It's very beautiful. :)

This is so touching! I know the feeling to a great extent. Friendships lift you up, then fade (so heartbreaking). This poem is just lovely! Yes, memories are jewel-like. Very well said, and please keep writing.
