The prisms of friendship are a rare beauty. When a special light hits a prism, different colors emerge. The colors of light have special distinct components, especially when the prism separates its colors when a beam of light is bent through an angle, and as it enters the glass, it differs from one color to the next color. A simple glass lens brings different colors to a focus at different distances. This is true of friendship. Each friend brings a different color through the prism of our lives.

Friends come in different colors and angles. Some are flashy, others bright, some are soft, while others are intense. Some are exquisite and impeccable, and just as each color of the rainbow is unique and distinct, each friend stimulates us diversely in our lives. Friends are a treasure. If seen through a prism, they are absolutely beautiful and lend the luxury of their treasure to our lives. Just as light must enter a prism, friendship enters ours as a mirror to reflect back to us the beauty we see.

To describe the different shades of friendship is often difficult to explain, since we share our secrets with them, our fears, our hurts, our hopes and our joys. We share something in common and are tied together by memories, tears, laughter and life. Friendship is my heart, my soul, my love, my life, and all that comprises me. When we each share and give, we discover the aura of friendship.

Friendship is all about growing a garden of flowers. Seeds are planted, flowers bloom, blossoms form, and friendship becomes a beautiful prism of
flowers.

Throughout my life, God has blessed me with innumerable friendships. Each friend complements me in some way. They bring their tint into my life and it illuminates mine. Sometimes they are the magnifying glass, others the lens, some are mirrors, while others are reflectors. Some are my glasses helping me to see, and others are binoculars who help put everything into focus, both short and long-ranged. A friend accepts me in spite of who I am flaws and all. Proverbs 27:7 (NIV), “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Friendships do just that.

Like the concept of friends as "prisms". Each reflecting light at different times and in different circumstances, but the colors present beauty and views of life we could not see without their perspective. Thanks.

What a beautiful article on 'Friendship'. The different facets of friendship you describe make for an interesting life as you enjoy the different colours of your experiences with your friends.

What a wonderful message. I have never thought of friendships like this, but you are right...I've had some nice friends along my path...one jewel got away. Perhaps sometime in the future, she'll come around. I enjoyed this read.

Wonderful symbolism. It really gave me a picture of what you were saying.
