I open the wrap

of dawn’s matins slowly

breathing a soft prayer

to the unseen sender

every day.

I open with my trembling hands

the darkest envelop

to find stars inside.

I thank the unknown sender softly

every night.

  1. Makes me think of Elvis & his song, “Return to Sender”, for at some point that’s what each of us does. I love your discovery of stars in dark envelopes–the whole piece, despite its brevity, is deep & reverent.

Thank You :)
