Short Letters

My department hosted a writing instructor’s conference today. One of the exercises I learned about was the idea of a postcard-length letter. It must be poetic, though not necessarily a poem, addressed to someone you know, and, hopefully, you will create something with a message that surprises even you:

Brother-Mine–

Though you are so much older than I, when we are together, I think we are teenagers together, driving backroads as we pass a beer between us.

Sincerely,

Your Youngest Sister
