I am here at this place
doing this thing, though I am writing to you.
Look – something I have observed.
You could add
I miss you much or
I wish you were here, because –
note something we could share.
Maybe you could sign off
Fondest regards, or
All my love and a thousand kisses,
but that is rather silly, so xoxoxo will do.
Here I am, in an afternoon,
noting the formula for correspondence.
Look, the whole point
would be a letter
I am a great fan of letter and postcard writing and my recent correspondences have triggered a few turns to poetry. The above may make it into the forthcoming bundle “Emily’s Poems for Modern Boys,” which is steadily rising in poem count.
In addition to the other poetry on this blog, you may enjoy my first volume, Shining in Brightness. It is available for preview and purchase via blurb.co.uk
You can follow me on Facebook or Twitter, where I tweet as @BeadedQuill.
