Today I received so many little love notes, I just had to let you know.
It happened behind the scenes, in my inbox. It was all about today’s Every Day Poem. One person expressed delight over seeing the photo he’d loved in our recent Rust Challenge. Another told me she was surprised and delighted to see that the featured poem had been penned by one of her writing group members, a best friend. And the last love note made me catch my breath; it said…
this morning in my quiet time i wrote to God and asked him to take me to the bottom line.
and then this arrives in my inbox.
Why poetry? Because of loves like these.
