710 : Two Halves

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: bond, grumble, painless.

Two Halves.

What is it 
That creates a bond,
A bridge, 
A meeting of minds?
What permits 
An intersecting
Of Souls 
Of different kinds?
We agree
That it’s not easy.
We grumble 
But accept 
It’s not painless 
But see beyond
To where 
Are kept.

  1. Sweet! I like the sentiments so eloquently stated here and, of course, the strawberry.

  2. Much less snarky than I have grown to expect from you - and equally polished and skilled.

    1. Definitely. No snark involved in my comment.

    2. "You may seek it with thimbles — and seek it with care;
      You may hunt it with forks and hope;
      You may threaten its life with a railway-share;
      You may charm it with smiles and soap —"

      No snark found!

    3. I am pleased you have found a strawberry half in the crushed fruit daiquiris of life
      Enough crushed strawberry daiquiris will have you seeing beyond memories and all manner of things:)

    4. Would you prescribe a hickory daiquiri, Doc?

  3. hickory dickery doc
    cosmo has lost the plot
    she knows what he needs
    and aiming to please
    she'll sit there
    and darn his ole sox


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
