Rained Out

August 15, 2021

Hiking Buddy

and I set out

on a neighbourhood trail

only to face rain and hail.

This is a Nanni, an Indian verse of between 15-25 syllables. with four lines total.

My hiking buddy, Akuura, is another friend whose presence has helped to cement my sense of well-being. Our mutual interests are nature, of course, and natural healing. We come from the same part of Massachusetts, giving a sense of siblinghood to the friendship. It also accents that the primary good that men and women can do for one another is to help in the healing process. So, anything I do with, or say to, my women friends needs to be of a soothing, supportive and reassuring nature- be they platonic friends, or slightly more involved. The converse is also true.
