    Ali,

    What can I say? Even though we have never met, we have shared an honest love through our letters. I miss our conversations, our twenty questions, our laughing and crying. I hope that you never stop dreaming and writing and loving. You are a true talent, and a true friend. May both grow with the years.

    Be good to you,

    a.m.

Best Poem of Alice Kriel

Longing

Dusk is fastly falling
familiar sweet melancholy
covers and fills me

Another day has passed
my search remains fruitless
sad beauty of solitary sunsets

I keep watch of the sky
waiting to wish on each
free-falling star hurtling towards earth

Clouds hug the distant suns
thunder drones overhead
and soft raindrops kiss my skin

My bed now seems emptier still
I stare into the darkness
watching a face that is not there

I pray for a dream of love
contrary to my present reality
falling asleep to angels weeping

Read the full of Longing

Miracle!

Airskating of birds in flight
Nightly dawn of neon light
The undeserved gift of sight

Graceful sundance of the trees
Water music and whispering leaves
Incredible uniqueness of being me

A sticky child’s sugary laugh
