Hello there...

A short postcard poem is the prompt for today. A greeting of any genre as long as it fits on a postcard.

                                                                                                                                                               E. Hopper  


  1. "I'm sorry for the things I didn't say..."
    Oh, this haunts me. And how amazing it would be to be able to put them in writing, once and for all. This is wonderful, Kathy.

  2. This is beautiful, Kathy, and so full of heartache

  3. Lovely postcard. I liked the lines about the arms not stretching enough, but they probably did stretch.

  4. This is a heartfelt postcard, I can feel the loss and the realization. "you were the pearl, outside my closed seashell"

  5. Oh this is beautiful...we don't realize that mostly...!!

  6. you were the pearl outside my closed seashell!!!! such a polished emotion filled line!

    so much of longing, much desire... beautifully sad

  7. Beautiful! I love arms not stretching wide enough, and Pearl outside my closed seashell. Feel the yearning in this.

  8. Kathy, this is so wonderful. First you took me (my imagination) back to the 20's, the expat artists and writers in Paris, and then you ended with a song that will rumble through my head today--a song from my era (not the 20's). Very poignant, rueful.

    1. It means a lot to receive your comment, Vi toria. Thank you.
