From the inside-out, the inner poet escapes, needing to express....
now in the days of emails, thinking about letters bring back beautiful memories.
often what is said between the lines is far more important than what is in them....smiles....
Nice symbolism here.
So very beautiful!!bridging the past with the future
lovely- especially the last verse.
Ginny, this is lovelyand sweet.
I really like the layers of meaning here.=)
I like how the meaning and perspective keeps shifting in this. Excellence, this is.
I miss the beauty of a handwritten letter....such a beautiful piece
Ah the lines...and what's between them...lovely...
often between the lines is where the real reading takes place...very fine poem.
What is unsaid carries as much weight as what is said...very well written and powerfully emotional. Nice work, Ginny.Steve
"… I stood, unsealed…". JUST WOW! And the closing - well, I bow in homage to this poem that leaves things "unsaid" … yet says so much.
Saturday afternoon - Dr. Who - It is such a strange time. I will record it - I hear it is going to be in some movie theaters for a day - have you heard that?
So we are, unsealed and often unwritten.
Silence between the lines.. nothing moves me more.. and work with emails as well.. lovely poem..
Reading between the lines is so important - and not always easy to do. When I was courting - do people do that these days? - I wrote and received lots of letters from my intended; do people do that these days? - and your poem reminded me of those days, of hoping there would be a letter waiting for me when I came home from work. Maybe I'm old-fashioned; maybe I'm just old.
I love this, Ginny.
Lovely ..particularly liked 'silence between the lines' ..well done.
While there is the convenience of email these days letters exude a piece of nostalgia in the heart. The feeling and of wondering when one gets the letter being awaited for was such a wonder and thrill then. Nicely Ginny!Hank
Oh, this is lovely!
