For a while
tradition of letter writing and greeting cards died
My friend Yumiko used to send me lovely letters from Japan.
And my mother, sent words of love and advice
which made its way above the Atlantic
or the Pacific
Either way it made its way to me.
Ikesha recently sent a letter to her grandma
with a lovely drawing of her in the park
pink hearts on the envelope
and a single line,
Ikesha loves Tok Wan.
A beautiful letter indeed.
