Fireblossom Friday. Postmark: Poetry!

Hey Toads! In this age of email and texting, it's easy to forget about sending a letter the old-fashioned way. So let's play Post Office! Write me a poem that includes a letter, or stamps, or a mailbox, or a mail person.

That's right, we're going Old School. Come up with a new poem, specifically for this challenge, and give it your best, people, don't just...

...wait for it...

....don't just mail it in!

LOVE the pic, the song, the pun and the prompt! i'll try to get something posted today, but you know how the snail mail is...... {grin}

Mine mentions a mailbox, but I may write another that's more central to the theme!

I'm loving all your reactions. :-)

I've had such a busy day but I read this prompt early morning and thought about it a lot throughout the day. I'm finally home and will respond to it in an hour or two, with two or three poems (because I adore you, Shay, and the prompt), because I have so many stories with letters and stamps you wouldn't guess!

Kiss. <3

A lovely prompt--I don't feel that I was able to do it justice but forging ahead. k.

as I read through the poems inspired by this prompt I just had to come back here to say how much I have enjoyed it. So many different letters we all would write.
