Writing 101, Day Five

#Reblogging again.
This was from a writing group from four years ago. Haha. I did join those things before. ☺️ And oh, how time flies!
The task was to write about finding a letter on a path that affects you deeply.
And why, not bad, younger self, not bad. Hahaha. ☺️

overcast and hazy

Day 5 Assignment: Be Brief
 You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. And your twist? Be as succinct as possible.

She said, “I’m sorry”,
An awful lot of times.
Then tried to say, “Goodbye”,
It took a while.
But still she wrote it,
Her letter,
Long and raw, and wretched.
How I came across it,
I’ll never know –-
She might have dropped it in a flurry,
Or could have thrown it away;
I could not say.
So I left it there, by the lonely bench,
Where I found it,
For the passing wind to carry,
Or so it could make another stranger’s heart weary.
She said, “I’m sorry”;
Why, she loved him so well.
