Overnight Special Delivery

For Miz Quickly’s Impromptu Poetry Day 19: Wish You Were Here

Got this in return mail early this morning. The print was so small, I had to use a microscope to read it. Guess I’m on my own:


Overnight Special Delivery

Dearest Elizabeth,

Feel a lot like a kite
tied not too tightly
to thin wrist of small child:
adrift, but still attached,
jerked around a bit
but only from a faraway

From the office of the Poem Fairy’s Assistant
PS: Your request has been filed.
I’m the one who likes the cookies.

Note: Sorry, it was such a golden opportunity with the current prompt. Had to reply to my own request of yesterday. The image was found on Facebook and comes from this site:

    If these fair folk are anything like editors, this is a promising response.

    This is so sweet! I love it, Elizabeth. Listening to Scott Pelley’s serious voice drifting up from the TV in the kitchen, I need something light-hearted tonight.
