I don’t know if I can call you my Childhood Friend or that of Adolescence?
But does it matter anyway-I know we will be friends till senescence.
Do you remember the gangly,gauche girls playing ball?
And sharing glances of empathy when surrounded by all?
Who understood each other without any understanding,
A friendship blossoming over distance,yet undemanding.
Sundays,Reader’s Digest,Bisi Bhele Bhat
Ferreting out recalcitrant cats.
Gossip,advice,confidences and future plans
Fondly remembered by me in India,a dear Amerikan.
Go find the next mountain to climb
And may your days be full of happiness sublime.
