Zip into a poem

Thanks to Rose Cappelli, who sliced about using her phone number as a springboard for a poem, I’ve used my zip code to come up with today’s slice.

19335-1757

I used my zip code as a structure for this slice.

Friends:

Gerry, Marie, Naomi, Cynthia, Charlene, Lynne, Gini, Nancy, Jane.

Sharing our laughter,

Sharing our tears,

Strong women who really listen.

Friends.

Years may pass with no physical contact,

I know they are present.

In my “mind’s eye” I hear them.

  1. Zip code poems are so fun! You even wrote using the extended zip code. Yes, a true friend is one that is present even if they aren’t present. I can always feel the importance of family and friends when you share.

  2. It took me a minute to figure out the structure — I liked having to figure it out… so many great ideas. I agree with Rose that kids would love this! Almost like a puzzle within a poem And… a lovely poem about friendship — so many lines ring true!
