One’s friends are precious, keep them close in heart,

Even though distance can get in the way,

It’s no excuse, these days, to be apart,

Community is needed like the day

With modern technology you can chart

The goings on of your loved ones, come what may

Distance means nothing with love in full flow

The voice of each other’s hearts, you will know


This is a collaboration poem with Revived Writer . She chose an ottava rima – an 8-line poem written in iambic pentameter with rhyme pattern abababcc as the form. Her part is in bold and I completed it. From Jilly’s Casting Bricks October Challenge.
