A Letter In The Mail

So Much For Technology

"Today, we vilify technology. We found some new gadgets made our lives better. But some were like opening Pandora’s Box. Think of some technological wonder of this modern age and then consider its predecessor. We want that poem."

I think I shall write
a letter.  Better yet,
I will write it in
purple ink.  The receiver
will open the envelope
with care and curiosity.
He/she will touch thick
stationary, note flow
of writing, style
of each letter, and nod.
'Yup, that's her.  What
a job I have now to decipher
the words.  No mistaking
whose handwriting it is.'
I will wait eagerly
for a reply.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
