On Writing

Poem 8: On The Benefits of Hand-Writing A Letter

On The Benefits of Hand-Writing A Letter

The smooth torso of an inked or leaded utensil
Pressed in a bouquet of eager fingertips

Paper choice – the texture the smell
The rustle of communication 

Electric pulses of language from brain
Through heart through soul – physical 
Extensions of emotions in cursive flow

The gathering of thoughts in pauses
Looking out a window
Breath held in contemplation
To the confident tick of a second hand
Pulling Time around like a wagon

The art of reminiscing
The catharsis of explanation
The necessity of anger management
The heat of low-belly lust
The jazz of true love
The ocean of farewell

The final recipe of letting go:
Dated
Signed
Folded
Inserted
Sealed
Stamped
Sent
