Smoke Signals

We send them out,
Sometimes half formed
Born before their time
Limping and gasping
Sometimes beautifully crafted
Perfect in their entirety
Soaring and rising
In their perfection

See me! They waft into the ether
Hear me!  Love, loss, laughter
Read me! Joy, fear, pain
Know me! A primal urge
I am, therefore
I write, therefore
I am.
