  1. I haven’t seen an acrostic in so long — or a hand-written letter either! In my family we still send hand-written thank you cards for Christmas and birthdays, but that’s about it. So.. what am I to do with all this leftover stationery?!?

      • Oh right, we still do handwritten holiday cards, I’d forgotten about that. But other than from my mom and sister, I rarely get another card that’s handwritten; they’re all pre-printed these days.

  2. Hey Sammi,

    Is there anything better than getting a letter, anything better at all? 🙂

    The problem is of course that to send a letter one must had an address, else it is inevitable one’s owl will get lost en route. Mine for example is still not back having left days ago to drop by at your door 😉

    Have you kept all of the personal letters you have been sent? What about Love letters? Do you have a special place for those…a treasure chest or similar perhaps? 🙂

    An excellent acrostic, cleverly fashioned, thank you.

    Namaste 🙂

    • Hey Dewin,

      No, there is nothing better than a handwritten letter. Knowing that someone has taken the time to scribble a few lines – or a few pages – for your eyes only, is an enchanting, priceless gift.

      Yes. Addresses are required if things are not to get lost at the sorting office – or the owl courier exchange lol Who knows where that owl could have got to. The owl has gone AWOL and left us all waiting 😀

      I do tend to keep all personal letters and correspondence – I’ll need them when it comes to writing my memoirs! Lol. I’m only joking, of course. A treasure chest full of letters…I like the sound of that!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the poem 🙂

      Brightest Blessings, always 🙂

      • Hey Sammi,

        Good evening, how are you? 🙂

        It is in the heart of our treasure chest where we keep the Love always found in a love of letters 🙂

        If you were to start a pen-pal correspondence and become a Lady of Letters, what sort of a character would you wish to write to?

        Namaste 🙂

      • Hey Dewin,

        I’m fine thank you. How are you?

        That is so beautifully written. You do have a magical way with words 🙂

        That is an interesting question. A bookish poet…a craftsman…a spiritual soul…a person who enjoys quotes, classics, nature…someone I could learn something from – but then everyone has something they could teach you, don’t they…such an interesting thought 🙂

        Have a great day! Brightest Blessings!
