Letters. A poem for Jessica.

Letters.

I hear you in the words you write,
your spirit and soul are there.
encapsulated in a line of print,
touching my heart, pulling me onward.

Those twenty six simple symbols
encapsulate your thoughts and feelings
and express so much more
than the mere meanings of individual words.

Each day I long for those letters to come
Those pages of sweet descriptive text to appear
I ache to know your hopes and dreams
yearn to share your secrets.

And in those mellifluous missives you send
are my dreams wrapped in seductive language
flowing through my veins
and racing toward my heart.

Artist's Description

I recently met Jessica through a web dating site. OUr communication has so far all been in the form of letters. But what letters! Erudite, imaginative and tender. The y inspired me to write this piece.
