Yours Truly

April Garden 4

Dear Sir,
Or should I say-
To Whom It May Concern,

(does anyone use ‘whom’ anymore?)
(And are you really all that concerned?)

I appreciate your kind-
no, thoughtful-
no, condescending-
epistle
letter
note,
that you must have spent agonizing hours-
a few minutes-
a second-
to construct.

I have considered your tempting (not really)
offer
and have decided
to answer-
ignore-
shred
all evidence of this important-
valuable-
ridiculous-
matter.

And instead,

I shall take my straw hat and gloves,
whistle for the dog,
and he and I will spend the afternoon
in the garden
visiting with the bleeding hearts and columbine
and writing love letters to the bees.

Yours Truly,

  1. A delight! Eagerly awaiting your (no doubt much more fond) love letters to the bees. 🙂

  2. OMG! in a land of robotic calls.. the frustration of form letters has become it all…

    So yes.. i too.. visit the land of backyard flower.. bees.. and birds of lore.. In life..

    where all moves in tapestry and never follows a sidewalk of Zombie Apocalypse

    NOW..:)

  3. Ha….I love the ‘on second thought’ sort of writing voice here that wasn’t edited out….brilliant and clever inclusions in the letter that made it so authentic and cheeky. Loved it 🙂

  4. love this so much n photo along with this is so beautiful/nature is such beauty for all us to enjoy/shared with all my friends/ea day is made with every post u share with me/thanks so much

  5. There was so much spice in this letter! You vented oh so beautifully! I laughed out loud a few times too! Good riddance to form letters!

  6. Just a teeny bit of sarcasm here, isn’t it? I have a number of marketers I’d love to pass this out to! And yes, the “love letters to the bees” was just precious. And a much better use of time too, I might add.

  7. Writing love letters to bees! How marvelous. I am so grateful for my spam filter and my intelligent decision to have a trash can inside the garage where I can put those wretched spam offers without ever having to take into the house.

  8. Love it. At first I thought it was going to be about publishers’ rejection letters, which, sadly for those of us you await a positive reply, aren’t much that different from spam…with rare exception.

  9. Oh yes, the spam letters, the self-marketing Twitter hounds who want to be liked, the incessant Robo-calls that happen right at supper time–all are deep into the realm of the ridiculous, the absurd, rife with BS & insincerity–that I feel the politicians are in this club too, thus the motivation to write my “letter” to the Republican senators.

  10. This made me smile. I am thinking of all the spam offers I receive…each of which someone must have spent valuable hours composing. Writing love letters to the bees would be much more enjoyable.

  11. This really made me laugh. I could also write a letter to all the people in administrations who never pick up the phone! And, between you and me, I still use ‘whom’. 🙂
