Fair-weather friends

a shiver went

down my spine.

My regulars, they

chose to postulate

from me

special attention.

Sodden characters,

I need to know

only once.

  3. I don’t understand this either, but that’s not unusual. I had a tough time in my poetry class in college. It was embarrassing.

    Have a fabulous day, Eugenia. ♥

    • Sandee, my poem addresses 3 prompts using words regulars, postulate, shiver and once. The gist is some so-called regular friends can be demanding and expressionless thus we don’t need to know them for a lifetime.

      The image represents mind-games with a bunch of expressionless characters.

      Some of my poems are out there! lol My mother used to tell me I walk to a different beat than some! 🤪

  4. I absolutely adore this, Eugenia. You handled this favored topic with great aplomb.
    The first poem posted on my current poetry page was called “Fair Weather Friends.”
    I referred to it as my Mission Statement.

  5. What I’ve learned in 67 years is that most humans are self-centered–but some do outgrow it, mature and realize that others are equally important; so it’s best to invest some quality attention in those good souls who come into our lives. If folks are chronically fair-weather friends they may well end up alone…and possibly clueless as to why, sadly. Best regards to you.

  6. Fair-weather friends are not good regulars. I was struck by the image – those impossible to win games.
