Crossings

Day 15 NaPoWriMo. I am happy to introduce you to a positive, friendly guy, Stefan (Stevyy) from Austria. Stevyy loves stamps and postcards (and poetry too).  This is his special made postage stamp. Stevyy and I met through Postcrossing.com where you snail mail postcards to people all over the world. He has sent more than 1300 cards in five years. Stevyy you’re a PostCross superstar! Enjoy the poem he inspired me to write.

Crossings

Shrinking planet
not literally
shrinking through crossings.
The tall mountains of Austria,
the oceans between us
cannot keep hearts apart.
In a pretty card,
a friendly email,
a Facebook smile,
a positive poetry blog,
we cross distances
without taking a step.

Maybe with enough crossings,
enough connections,
enough understanding,
enough warm words,
we can eliminate war.
Instead we will cross this small planet
and we will sing to each other.
