Long emails in the dead of night

Long emails in the dead of night
Picking over words
Choosing the diplomatic with a loving heart
Trying to explain the insanity
ever present in all of us
Wanting to please and make all things good
Knowing that I can't and won't and that's OK
Bridging the miles and decades
Finding that genetic links are good too
and mean something after all
So many late nights
So many long emails
Quite a few tears and so many smiles.

Did you write this? A very good piece of poetry.

I hope that you are well.

Take care xoxo

:-) Just a little free flow writing about 10 minutes before the time of your message. It is just a piece from the heart, saying it as it is. That is what I like about blogging: is being able to be creative and expressive however I please and no-one saying what is right or wrong.

Yes I am fine thanks Britmum though had a rough night last with lots of night terrors.

I'm afraid I've been pre-occupied and not getting around to my fav blogs but that seems to be a current theme for many of us.

Like it, congrats, good for you.

I think that covers all three angles (poetry, results, your strength & composure). Yup, that does it.

Thanks Cheryl! :-)

Now I have the long wait for a reply to the email I wrote last night. Nail biting and fingers crossed.

Good for you Doris. You really are a sticker-at-it (is that a phrase?)

That's lovely - I can just see you sitting there, pensive. And it speaks of you, from the heart. It comes across.

Such a wonderful bit of poetry. And now that the novelty has long since worn off, email is as human a way of communicating as any other. The humanity is in the communicator, not the medium.

Thank you for this.

DoF Sounds crazy but I hadn't thought of it as bringing new technology into the world of poetry but of course that is what it is!
