Received your letter today

As the paper rustled between my fingers

I shivered at your touch.

Your writing winked at me

Making my heart go aflutter

And your words,

Oh your words!

They caressed me

and teased me

and nuzzled me,

Coaxing a smile from me

My tears are rainbow hued

Your words have painted them.

  1. Oh what a beautiful letter that must have been, your imagery of the words received are superb, and I can’t help myself Punam, Leonard Cohen’s song Letters is a fav’ of mine, his lyrics are exquisite

  3. Love everything about this from the simplicity of the title to the profound movement of emotions in the content. When all we can share are words, they mean the world. Beautifully captured, my friend.
