Poem 64 – More on the Merits of Handwriting a Note

More on the Merits of Handwriting a Note

the time it takes to  
hand write a love note
is far surpassed by 
the love it spreads
through its intended 
receiver



It’s Friday! Oh, how I love Fridays! The sun shines brightly daring us to shine our own brilliant light! Can you feel it?! I hope so.

Did you receive your postage-paid postcard in the mail from Canada Post? I hope so. Be sure to use it. Send some of your delightful love into the heart of a loved one. 😉

And…just wondering what you’re reading?

I just finished Molly of the Mall – Literary Lass & Purveyor of Fine Footwear by Heidi L.M. Jacobs. I give it six out of five golden stars. It’s an A+! I got my book from Biblioasis.

And I was just gifted Rupi Kaur’s new collection home body.

Also on the bedside table are Jude Neale’s latest poetry collection The River Answers

…and Jillian Boehme’s lasest YA fantasy The Stolen Kingdom.

This is me holding Jillian’s book before her virtual launch this past Wednesday.
This is me smelling The Stolen Kingdom. Goodness it smells so damn good.

Joni Mitchell and Carole King are serenading me this morning…do have a wonderful weekend, writers!

  1. Hi Vanessa; Enjoying the daily poetry/thought missives. What are we reading? Reading W.O. Mitchell – The Kite, Alistair MacLeod’s “No Great Mischief” and “Island”. I’ve read the first 2 years ago and wanted a refresher, but looking forward to the Island which is new to me. Also, listening to new music from Tubaskinny and enjoying that while I read. Take care! Greg
