Friendship – a tanka

United they stood 
Differences didn't matter 
Friendship grew stronger 
Nothing could tear them apart 
Untied by blood, joined by fate 

I hope you enjoyed this Tanka. 😊 We all must have friends who make our lives much better by their mere presence. We have certain people with whom we forge bonds that are strong enough and as good as blood relationships. This one is dedicated to all those bonds of friendship.

This poem was written in response to Sadje’s What Do You See Challenge #96. The What Do You See challenge is to use the picture prompt as inspiration to compose an original story, poem, or a caption. Thank you, Sadje for hosting this challenge.

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows four women standing together and laughing. They all are from different ethnicities.
