True Friendship~Vanilla and Ice


....Lower your expectations...
Could we ask for true friends?
I think all we can do
is to offer being one,
unconditionally.
I believe most people are warm
and comforting,
but it is not easy
to find like minded people.
We are all different,
our experiences,
culture,
way of living,
may have points of similarities
but also great differences.
When we learn to accept
and respect
those differences
as the spice
that makes people original,
like vanilla with ice
we ourselves might become
kind and gentle.
I am not such, still learning.
The mind will always
want to judge and impose
over everything
that proves to be different,
isn't it?
So maybe from here comes
the well known word
which is supposed
to bring a soul its peace:

'FOLLOW YOUR HEART'

One day I hope my heart
will come to be the true friend
Of my own mind
Mixing as gently and kind
As vanilla with creamy ice.

    There are so many good thoughts here I am overfilled with great joys
    reading them. If vanilla and ice are blended together to make a delicious
    treat then why can't we as humans blend together to make the world a
    better place to live in. We have to respect each other differences as well
    as our likeness. PH gives us that opportunity to express ourselves. You
    have done that to the utmost. I have a poem A Faithful Friend that compliments
    yours. Very inspiring. (Report) Reply

    One day I hope my heart
    will come to be the true friend
    Of my own mind

    As vanilla with creamy ice.
    Nice thoughts, well expressed. (Report) Reply

    yet we differ still we converge upon
    heart when resonates in deep red
    distinction seems to mill in impulsion
    distances slowly redeem in room of unison (Report) Reply

    This is one of your best writes Elena! The analogy brought in is so apt. There should be true merging of hearts as ice cream and vanilla! We should learn to overlook differences and blend with the essence! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply
