When I asked for guest posters for this week, Cat of Cat Forsley was quick to volunteer. Today, you get a taste of her free form poetry and a picture she created to go with the poem on How are friendships born? And you get to hear it in her own sweet voice! Press play on the soundtrack and read along with Cat…
How are Friendships born?
They are born like every other beautiful thing in the world.
Friendships are born through water -air -earth -fire and sun.
Friendships are kindled by similar passions.
Friendships are born like flowers-
a full field of daisies with their leaves connected.
They may not see they are connected at first…
These are the friendships that last forever.
Born of Sun and Water and Earth,
Heads tilted up at the sky in wonder at the magnificent array of stars in the sky.
Friendships are made by hearts that yearn to be heard and listened to, by the same kind of voice.
There is always synchronicity in the mix
added there by angels or sheer points of light in the sky.
Connect the dots
for we are all dots
yet we are much more
when a friend becomes
more than just a friend:
A part of our hearts.
A True Friend Lives in The Heart
and is carried and lifted –
Through Good times and bad …
With a deep Knowing that The Heart will be heard.
Some back away from connecting
The Heart way.
Because at times – people become too close and then began to feel, with empathy and wish
What Their friend is Going through.
Never think that this kind of compassion and kindness goes unnoticed.
It is noticed.
More than that.
I imagine hands touching hearts all over the world .
I imagine fingers knotted together,
Voices echoing with laughter and candour.
If You Love someone – tell them!
Our lives are so short here…
There is no time to waste.
In love – there is friendship
and in friendship – inevitable love.
How are friendships born?
They are Born and They grow like tall flowers –
meeting one another on the path of life.
They Bow their petals when They meet – because sometimes – just sometimes – They feel as though they have known one another – forever and a year .

Thank you to Cat for bringing today’s post to M3. I am glad you stopped by to give us this heartfelt look at (and listen to!) friendship.
M3 Readers, let Cat know what you think! Be sure to stop by her space after you comment. And you know, as always…I have a question…or three.
How do you know when friendship is sparked? Can you tell when it turns the corner from a casual friend to a lifetime friend? Have you ever met someone you instantly felt you had known your entire life?
