NaPoWriMo Day 19: Friendship

I breathe a sigh,
pack my book bag,
and head home
after a day of teaching.

When I get home,
I wait for footsteps
on the front porch:
mailman!

I lift the top
of the mailbox
and sunshine
glows out;

there is a letter
from my friend.
I carefully slit
the envelope

then sit in a warm
breeze of friendship.
There are stickers
and pictures

and poems and words
about the simple,
and frustrating, and joys,
and worries.

The best part
is our own acronym
at the end:
TFBMF.

(Thanks for being
my friend)

I like all the details you use to draw out the pleasure and poignancy in this brief moment - very effective.

This is so good. The small details are great. I can imagine everything.

I like the way you use the weather to express the joy of receiving a letter from a friend.

'There are stickers
and pictures

and poems and words
about the simple,
and frustrating, and joys,
and worries.'

These are the things that make sharing special.

You have me missing the simple act of getting a letter, as opposed to e-mail or comments on my blog.

I've actually gone back to writing thank you notes and small things. Maybe I ought to throw a letter in the mix every now and then...

This is very visual. You could see the mailman and the anticipation. You could hear the laughter and feel the tears from the joy of the letter. And you got a real sense of the closeness these two people share. GREAT job!
