There is no greater gift than friendship – Be Inspired Challenge #26


Before I get to my entry for this week’s Be Inspired Writing Challenge, I wanted to say a huge thank you to Amreen for her recognition, her support and her encouragement. She awarded me with a much sought after ‘Be Inspired badge’, and I will display it with pride. If you’d like to read the post, you can find it here.Β I always enjoy taking part in the challenges, not only because I am keen to improve my skills in poetry, but because they do exactly what the title suggests – they inspire me.

The challenge this week is to write a Clarity Pyramid, and here is my contribution:


I know I’ve used the subject of friendship before, but I hope you enjoyed it. The friendships I’ve made throughout my life make me a better person, and it is nice to think about all the friends I have yet to meet, those who will touch my life as I, in return, touch theirs.

Thanks for reading.

    1. Aw, thanks, Callum. I should maybe have challenged myself a little more, but it was the first thought in my head and sometimes we have to go with it πŸ™‚ It’s quite a nice form, and when I’m given something prescriptive it starts the ball rolling!

      1. Yeah, I just finished it, though I almost filed it in the bin! I’m sure the ‘slump’ won’t last long and you’ll be inspiring us in no time at all πŸ™‚

      2. LOL I’m glad you have faith in me. I feel bone-tired today, but you never know… πŸ™‚ An itch may bewitch… Have a great weekend!

I'd love to hear from you.
