Blessing for the Writing of Letters by Jane Boutwell
May my hand running across this paper as I write
reach out like a hand to hold in friendship
- a tangible connection between us:
our hands & our hearts.
Although simply lines on a page,
may the impact of this note ripple outward,
an echoing refrain
in times of loneliness.
May the particular words I choose make you feel known.
May my words generously offer
the uniqueness of my heart
to the uniqueness of yours.
