Dear Sir

"There must be millions of people all over the world who never get any love letters... I could be their leader. " ~Charlie Brown

The art of writing a letter
surely is a dying craft.
Who needs a pen and paper
when a computer is in your lap.
E-mails have replaced our need of stamps
and facebook the envelopes.
Now the mail man only delivers bills
and stationary companies are going broke.

Light Weight Like Paper Heavy Like Words

Big Room, 1948, by Andrew Wyeth
The Mag 132
"There's a certain slant of light, On winter afternoons, That oppresses, like the weight Of cathedral tunes."  ~Emily Dickinson

Some memories pierce through my mind  like winter's morning light  through a window pane  moves through a big room then like weary guests  from a long journey  others sit at my table with the weight of old regrets   together we relive the past walk the halls of torn down houses remembering the laughter trying to forget the loss.


Some people embrace love with the fervor of a missionary holding it close like a book of scriptures to the heart while others just cup it softly and awkward like a nestling that has somehow fallen from where it once was the love I hold has wandered through both paths like a lost fawn searching for comfort in the dark once my heart found it I grasped hold with the strength of a thousand men never wanting to let go yet too weak to try
now I tenderly keep it within my palm
knowing it is too fragile
to withstand another fall.
