Saturday Haiku: Friends of/are Friends

“Group Hug” by Taurus Burns

Jason attended parties
at which he did not know
the guest of honor.

Other people would
invite him as “plus one”–
make him feel welcome.

Jason never felt
the invite was correct…
…Then the host welcomed him.

Jason felt brand new.
He lost himself in good.
There was no mistake.

Be nice to all guests.
Some say, “Strangers are friends
you haven’t met yet.”
