I have been writing
you a letter
every day

You will never know
the contents
They never
got posted

Maybe today
I will try again
if only I could
put a stamp on it

What if someone
picked them up
at the recycle
they could write
a book from
my letters

Lovely. And universally true.

Love the third stanza. Says a lot.

And I like that it is a letter and not an e-mail. It literally adds value to the message. Ableit, only 44 cents, the cost of paper and envelope, but more valuable is the thoughtfulness and time. Even if never sent.

A letter is tactile. Sensual.

best,

IMR

Really, Really nice..


I really like this poem.


It has a lot of imagery.


I can just imagine what this is coming from.


I really like the whole "You will never know the contents They never got posted"


Really, really nice.
