10. I Love ... the cursive L

I love the look of it.
I love making it.

It's graceful,
figure skating
with your fingers.

It's balletic.

It's flowing
directing a symphony.

It was my favourite letter to write
when I was learning cursive writing.

L and S

I envied people whose names started with those letters.

I married into an 'S'
but I'm quick and sloppy with it.
Half the time you can't even tell
it's an S
It's not the practiced, musical S of my childhood.
because it always reminded me
of a backwards treble clef.

But my L is.
It's hard to sloppy-up an L.
