Somewhere (to friends)

I picture you
Far away
Letting your heart spill onto paper
Folded neatly and tucked
Into the small envelope
Sitting at your desk
As you ponder sadness
Through the view of the window
I see you beautiful,
A smile tilting your mouth
As you recall a story,
An anecdote
Of your days,
Locked in the world
Far far from here.
I close my eyes
Wondering where your mind drifted to
As you told me of heartbreak
Of joy
And of the gifts that life brings,
And I feel as if I’ve known you
For forever and a day,
And I think of the words
Written on pretty paper
And I wonder if you know,
Just how much joy
You give me on dark days,
Just how much words mean
When the heart craves all things good
And the envelope flies
To land at my feet
Another white feather sent
From the bird that flies free
In the sky above.

I am a sometimes poet and an author of fiction novels (K.L.Laettner) on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.

      1. Yes, DearHeart- I get your Jest, even before your ‘assist’! ThankYou anyway for your efforts!

        Also, my apologies for the weather we’ve sent–
        I was not consulted, or I would have vetoed it as your Proxy!

        Ours is dry & sunny Arctic air-
        freezing my woodpile into one solid block, I am forced to take an axe to, to split it, yet Again!!
        But the sun & Dry is good for my lungs and that which still must be done….

        Your Man is Right…when our ‘work’ is at end- so are we. On that i must Agree!

        And so too, are You correct as well, for on that Day, not Moments after my blood goes Chill, will I be waiting in that Hazy Glade ‘Beyond’, at table -‘Reserved’ for Two- for You….
        Your glass of wine- already poured, sitting across the cloth from mine πŸ˜‰

        PS– your ‘Well’ Wishes Strengthen my determination to carry on! ❀

    1. I’ve got this thing…I was given the gift in my travels of many white feathers,….didn’t think much about them but they kept happening…I take it as a great gift :). I also found a random button a day for 3 days straight….not sure what that meant…someone is cold where a button should be? Thank you John πŸ™‚
