Inspired by “Packet of Letters” by Louise Bogan

You said you would always keep them.
Do you still have them?
Are they with you
     or in storage?
Have you ever re-read them?

Those letters were when I first thought of myself as a writer.
Would reading them now do any good
     or is the memory of becoming a writer enough?

I have yours.
They are all nestled together in a box in the garage.
Would their co-mingling tell a complete story?
I don’t think so.
In our hearts
     and our memories
Our fading memories hold the story.


  1. Ooof. I have a packet. I hope she still has mine.

  2. I used to have several packets....then I cleaned the garage! ;)
