I like to write because it feels right. 🦢 Will miss this bliss!
September 10, 2020
 

I won’t say goodbye
because it’s too sad.
I’ll try not to cry
even though I feel bad.
I’ll continue to write
because that’s what I do.
And when I pick up my
pen, I’ll think of you.

Dear Drew, Araceli,
Letterists & Lettrs Staff, ✌🏽💗✨✨

This is just a short note
to say thank you for all the wonderful memories I have here. This forum has been a much loved lifeline for  many of us to unwind and come to terms with our reeling  minds and lives. I had no idea how much I would come to appreciate this safe, vibrant, and welcoming community. It has been a gentle meeting place where we all had the freedom to share ideas and to experience words in the form of letter art. There are so many incredible and interesting writers here! I applaud each of you and your craft!  I say thank you to each and everyone of you for all your participation and engagement.

Thank you to Drew and Ara...

We’re all on edge
to see what will be.
No one knows what
to expect. But I guess-
going back to normal
will be stranger yet.

put my heart in my pocket;
she is safer there.

It’s a strange surprise
to be going about your
day and then feeling
another’s eyes upon you
quickly turning away.

I used to believe
and others laughed
at my views.  And
now,  they talk about
what for some of
us is old news.
Funny, isn’t it?

If I take a minute
of my day to scribble
a few  untangled lines  
and they come together
in just the right way,
then it’s such a great
feeling and then I
get on with my day.

Other times I must
return to my words.
As they haunt me till
they can be released.
This can happen twice
or many more times
and I continue till
their thoughts cease.

Now I pose a
question for you.
How do you find
that you write?
Is it in an endless
back and forth session?
Or is it once or twice?

Thanks for the stamp, Drew! ✌🏽😊✨

I never planted
a garden before;
only a few seeds
of inspiration and I
often wondered what
people did it for.
I see it’s a time of
wistful contemplation.

I was so busy doing,

that I wasn’t seeing
what was going on
right in front of me.

Sometimes the smallest
of things can simply and
completely make your day!
I woke up to sweet sunlight,
a chattering flutter of sparrows, two hungry dogs, and finally a hot coffee! I look forward to this last day of long 🇨🇦 weekend and anticipate the arrival of my family and friends. I am grateful for this beautiful, warm summer day filled with sunshine!

that some of us are
trying to reenact the
lives that we never had.

Dewdrops on the
lawn are glistening
The sparrows fly by
on summer breezes!
Bellflowers of blue
are in bloom listening
to the cheery sparrow
chorus that teases us!

It feels like
all the changes
that we’ve been
experiencing,
though they are
so disconcerting,
are very necessary.

In the afternoon sun
it can be such fun for
a bunch of summer
sparrows to jump and
play in our new, wet
pool just to get cool!

They hate you
because they
can’t love you.
They hate you
because they
can’t have you.
They hate you
because they
can’t be like you.
They hate you
because you aren’t
what you seem.
They hate you
because you’ve
worked so hard.
They hate you
because you’ve
dared to dream.

Just make one beautiful wish!
Then just release it to the stars.
Trust all is meant to simply be.
Wait patiently, until the universe delivers your sweet request in the
most profound and beautiful way.

I look back at my past
and feel a pang of grief.
Gone are many, but it’s
my fond and wistful belief
that they look over us all-
with love and protection
as we recall them in quiet
moments of reflection.

Tender thoughts
on a quiet evening.
Clouds are replaced
with blackened skies.
We slowly wind down;
as the day is receding-
I gently drift off to sleep
where my pillow lies.

I have often noticed that the
things that have hurt me
most can seem trivial to
others, and I’m often told
that I’m just too sensitive.
I wonder how people can
be so cavalier and unkind
at the same time and never
reflect on the feelings of
their actions upon others.  
I wonder then, just how we
come to be the way we are?

I have had my heart
ripped out of my chest
a few disastrous times.  
It took all I had to put
myself  back together.
Now I see the role I
played in my demise,
and I’m relieved that
I fared the weather.
It’s interesting what
you see when you look
through a different lens.
I’m conscious of this now;
as on it my life depends.
