Tom and Fleck

Hi readers!!!!

Hump day here – don’t you just love it when you’re half way through the week??

It’s been about 6 months since I started blogging again, and in that time I’ve had the opportunity to meet other bloggers (thanks to the numerous online communities I follow). Lauren happens to be one. She stumbled on my blog when I wrote a post titled Goodbye, she reached out and lets just say we’ve been blog buddies ever since 🙂

I would say Lauren is a Journal Writer – you can check out her blog here.

When I asked Lauren if she would like to do a feature on my blog – she was quick to let me know she was no poetry writer but she sent a post in anyway. Her poem today has some sort of openness about it that I really like. Please enjoy


“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born”

– Anais Nin

Tom went to Northbridge High

He spent most of his break alone with his thoughts

Tom decided he wanted a lifelong friend

Someone who would drive him round the bend

Tom had never had a friend

He didn’t know where to find one

Tom longed for laughter and fun

But there was no-one

When he was sitting on a bench enjoying the fresh air,

One of the ‘popular’ people came and sat down next to him and started talking.

And that was when he met Fleck.

Fleck was funny, weird and friendly.

They spent every second together,

Being happy and fooling around,

And Tom never felt alone again!


Thank you so much Lauren for sharing this with my readers and I.
