The Bottom Line

I want to figure out

what I’m trying to say

and what we’re all

trying to say –

with this assortment

of twenty six letters

that is all we have

and is still somehow

enough.

  1. Those 26 letters rarely *seem* like enough. But, yes, it’s all we have. And with poetry it can make all the difference. I hope you are accepted as a *teacher* at the writing workshop!

Thoughts? I love those.
