Conversations


Breaking the ice of unfamiliarity
Like a river dancing with joy
It flows and meanders, bubbles and ebbs
To the calm of the sea of familiarity

That we pass by on a long drive
Through the unexplored terrain of minds
We're not sure where this could take us
But we're going along for the ride

On a journey with no destination
As purposeless as life itself
It goes on simply because it must
But we're going around in circles now

Twirling as if in a dance
Now a smooth waltz
playful cha-cha, a fiery salsa
A tango, if you please, of letters

Written on the pages of a book

Reluctant to tell its story
One that I cannot put down
I must know what happens next

In this game of words
With ever-changing rules
One that nobody wins; one that everyone does
And I must confess, I just can't get enough


This is an absolutely lovely quote from C. S. Lewis:


"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which gave value to survival."
