Poetry Challenge by SJ Warner

Postcards

image
The messages lay
Upon my desk
Words from a love
So far away
image
Words sent from a
Place so dark
Yet filled with love
And light.
*
The hope and affection
Bring me to tears
Words across the oceans
Sent from afar.
Each one so personal
So passionate
Hiding the horrors
Giving hope.
*
image
A note from man
To his sweetheart
Spread out before me
So much history.
*
The love that’s poured
Into every word on the
Delicate, browned parchment
Fills my heart.
*
As he tells
Of his hope for their future
And how he is
Eternally hers.
*
Words kept with a
Wedding dress
Packed away safe
Hidden from daylight.
*
Not known about
Until it was too late
To ask questions
Lovers reunited in heaven for
*
Eternity.

    • Dear Deb,
      Thank you so much, although some of the praise should go to my mum who at the drop of a hat found the postcards out and sent pictures of them to me. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful challenge and for including me. I really enjoyed writing this piece so much.
      Much love,
      Sal xx

      • Aww really …our moms are precious please thank her! They truly are special treasures and I am so honoured that you shared them sweetie via this challenge… the talent and love that has poured through the past two weeks has been just a breath-taking experience… I am so humbled by it!

        Massive hugs and love

      • I will do Deb, I sent the poem to her just after I sent it to you and she loved it. They most definitely are special treasures and it was a pleasure sharing them with you all. None of it would have happened without you so again…HUGEST THANKS EVER!!!

        Massive hugs and love back
