I went out walking in glorious sunshine yesterday, on the hunt for foxgloves to fotograf. Found lots of the graceful spires of bells, took lots of interesting snaps.
Well come on then, I hear you say, where are they?
Um. Nowhere. I’d forgotten to replace
the vital memory card
in the camera.
So no wild poem for Sally’s wild challenge today. Instead I found mindlovemisery’s heeding haiku prompt to write haiku or tanka on friendship.
To make it work,
friendship requires work –
*Old friends, new friends,
loved ones and neglected ones.
Age is not for wimps –
too many have gone before,
some for ever, some elsewhere.
*a variant of the regular introduction by pianist Semprini to his long ago Serenade programme on the BBC Home Service.
