I love receiving letters, don't you? Emails are wonderful, but there remains nothing quite like the real thing, especially if they're hand-written on special paper. I love handmade paper with bits of petal and leaf embedded in it.

Following an enlightening discussion I had with [livejournal.com profile] cmcmck a couple of weeks back, I realised this week's offering works as a poem, so have formatted it as such.


50-Word Vignette #22

Prompt: Letter

Spice-scented, ribbon-tied
and sealed with a smear of wax.
She flicked the letter between her fingers,
unopened.

Promises, bargains and lies.
No matter how prettily scribed the words,
She'd had her fill.

Poison-pen, they might say,
but her poisoned ink was far more effective
for the reply she would send.



Anybody else like to join in and write their own? Just post it in the comments. All welcome.
