Paper prison


When the letter arrived I held it for a while unable to open it.
I knew that once I read it, my heart would be forever trapped.
A prisioner held behind bars made of letters and words scribbled fast, in secret. 
I knew my heart would forever roam inside this cream colored bit of paper... my eternal prison.

  1. I sometimes wish for the return of the days when writing letters was something that one did almost on a daily basis. The beautiful caligraphy script here and the quill pen are wonderful.

    I hope your hacking problems are now resolved, Alina?

    Have a lovely weekend. Jeanne x

  2. Literally only two days ago, I handled and read a letter written to my Mum some 50 years ago by her Great aunt, i.e. somebody who otherwise only existed as a name on my family tree...

    I agree.
    Letters are very special indeed.

  4. No matter how technology changes us in years to come, I hope there will always be letters written by hand. Heart-felt words, Alina. Love and bright wishes to you. xx

Albert Schweitzer said "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit" I thank you all!
