Most elegant ten-letter word

Most elegant ten-letter word there is
Apparent but sometimes sadly missed
May be disregarded or totally ignored
Or abused by those inconsiderate lot
But those who appreciate it
Will be one to most benefit

F-R-I-E-N-D-S-H-I-P

A word commonly seen
Most admired by those who put value to it
Binds the bond of sincerity
Between two people or of many
Even naturally known sworn enemies
A Mouse Cat and a Dog
Are found to co-exist
And physically resting together
To form a pyramid
An unlikely feat
But it did!

  2. What a cool photo, Hank. And poem. I know people who have a number of dogs, a cat or two, and a pet mouse; and indeed it is true they do learn to at least co-exist.

  5. My former cat and dog really got on well. I always wondered how the cat felt when she lost her friend, a few years before she passed away too. Whether we are animals or human beings, friends do matter.

  12. Friendship means different things to different people. Like ' love' the word is used too casually for my tastes !
