Wish


the Sunday Scribblings prompt is fluent.

This is not a new poem, but I think it is appropriate for the prompt and I don't feel quite up to writing something new since I am still recovering from pneumonia. By some odd quirk of previous work on another computer with now out-dated programs, this was stored as a graphic rather a writing program. I hope you can read it! Of course I should copy it instead of pasting, but I have only my little netbook with me - and, yeah, it seems like a little too much work!

This is a gorgeous and moving poem about the magic of words. I'm sorry to hear you've had pneumonia, and I hope you feel better soon.

If there ever comes a day when you can no longer write them here, we will still enjoy the warmth of your glorious shimmering words with which you wove a warm spell and cast it over us. Thanks.

What better gift than words, for with them, each of us weaves our own dreams. Do hope you're soon fighting fit again! X

I'm so sorry to hear you have been ill - hope you are on the mend. Your poem is gorgeous and I loved the imagery of a sequined scarf thrown over us all.

What a lovely poem. Funny thing, I was thinking about you today, wondering how you were doing. I'm sorry you've been ill, but I'm glad you're on the mend!

What would we do without our netbooks? So good to read a poem that celebrates that "gift of words". The poem celebrates more than words but a life of loving, thinking, and feeling. I hope you're soon recovered.

It gave me chills to read your words..what a wonderful way to keep someone present, someone who can no longer communicate with us through spoken or written word.
Thank-you.
