Besides your usual writing, try writing a love letter
(or a poem, even a haiku)
to yourself, a family member, a lover, or your
best friend (2 or 4 legged.)
Choose one specific quality about your beloved
(that includes you) to write about.

(poem by Therese L. Broderick of Albany, NY, USA)


SHOULDERS

When I was young
at Mass in my church
of the lost & forgotten,
I tapped, tapped
each one,
whispering their names.
"Holy" and "Ghost."
At twenty-two, I found
another broad pair
to cry upon when
the lover left. Today
I'm old. My shoulders,
aching, sore,
call to me
for healing.
What is needed now?
The finest
needles of a
doctor who knows
the oldest
ways. Chinese
names
for the places
of deepest pain.

Thanks for your sympaties and reminding me of what I said. I forget what I said half the time, until I feel it again. I needed to feel that again.

Love Renee

Oh, I would write a love poem if I had tht talent, but a love letter I cn write-

To my dear Mother:

Though it's been over half a lifetime since I last saw your face and heard your confused words, and felt the pain of knowing you would never be healthy and whole. Though your cruel words still shape me, even today, I know you loved me in your own way. And, how does a person blame an innocent child for saying something cruel out of fear or anger. In the same way, I do not bear grudges. You were imprisoned by your demons, and you did your best. And, I miss you and love you.

Always, your daughter.

I wanted to write something in response to this image, but it took me until now to find the words I was looking for. Thank you, N and Ken! This is a beautiful image.
