Sincere Friendships Are a Blessing

Sincere Friendships …

sincere friendships
Sincere friends are a blessing …

Sincere friends will be in harmony and balance with you,
Inspire a caring, nurturing bond of love that is true,
Nurture the friendship by bringing out the best in you.
Compassion and kindness is paramount to friendship.
Eternal friends see the same truths and are soul family.
Respect each other’s personal space and beliefs.
Eventide is a good time for quiet conversation.

Foundation: let it be built on love, honesty, and respect.
Remember that a true friend is like a mirror to your soul.
Imbue your friendship with golden memories.
Every moment is precious, make it so.
Nearly always a good friend will share a box of chocolates with you.
Dreams and rainbows can be followed together or separately.
Sincere friends sing your praises, even when you’re not around,
Help when you need it and hold you up when you’re down.
Instill a sense that the friendship is a safe place for total freedom to be one’s self.
Provide a shoulder to cry on even if you are wearing your best shirt.
Sincere friendships are a true blessing.

I am the Senior Editor and SEO Editor for The Creative Exiles (TCE). I edit all posts to help members achieve an acceptable score on Google and other search engines. I am also an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    Excellent acrostic piece with some great thoughts and a very solid,sincere understanding of true friendship. Even some fantastic rhyming in this piece, which I’ve always found challenging in acrostic poetry. Nice work Phyllis.
