52. I Love ...Cursive Writing

There is something,
at times,
meditative about it.

Letters joined;
words running from one to another,

A fine hand can be an art.
At the very least,
it is a personality.

I can pick up something
and immediately 
identify the writer
by the handwriting.

That is something that is going to be lost.
And what a sad loss that will be.

All we will have is the printed word;
harsh, blocky letters.
Press PRINT.

Not the paper ...
the choice of which itself is signature;
paper where someone's hand
has run over it,
line after line,
letter by letter,
putting their essence and spirit
on to that page
the pen.
