Poetry

True friendship
is a plant
of slow growth.
                                   ~ George Washington



Long, thought out, and carefully penned letters carry with them verbiage heavy-laden with mindful wonderings. Often times these words stir steeped emotions that have been brewing for quite some time–they elicit an expected response from the recipient. But other times, it is the simplest of notes with the fewest words that bear the most passion by tugging the heart strings of its reader… 


Usually starting with “I”
and ending with “you”
sandwiched between,
a hand relays 
with one word
what a heart means.

love
you.
from a sweetheart 

I  
miss 
you.
from a sibling

cherish
you.
from a spouse

I
thank
you.
from a stranger

appreciate
you.
from a friend

Usually starting with “I”
and ending with “you”
sandwiched between,
a hand relays 
with one word
what a heart means.

And what its reader
really needs.

  1. “I appreciate you” from a friend.That pretty much sums it up. Beautiful, as always.Hugs,Melinda

  2. Your photos are stunning! You are the winner of the Poetry anthology! Just send me your snail and I’ll pop it in the mail ASAP.congrats!

  3. Whoohoo! What fun it was to find your blog from Ann's. To be honest, the only time I won something was when I accidentally called a radio station during a contest in college. I was dumb-founded at the DJ's chattering about being a winner. Apparently I made such a fool of myself (and the station) that they didn't bother to send me whatever it was that I had won! ;-)Thank you & may God pour many blessing upon you this day.

If you have somethin' to say, I reckon this is where you should do it. (If you're a newbie hereabouts, your first comment will be held for approval - cuts down on spam.) Thank ye for chatting!
