April 3, 2016


Prompt: write fan letters. I challenge you to write a poem in the form of a fan letter to a celebrity.

A Letter to Richard G. In Twilight

Dear Richard

You don’t know me, but
I know you far too well
each curve of your face
that glint in your eyes
that upturned smile
and tilt of your head

You see I stare
at you daily
you grace my screen
not the youthful you
who thrilled my youth
but the older, wiser you

it’s the man you’ve become
who endears my heart
the soulful, humbled man
who looks to the Buddha
for peace within
and love without

For thirty years, I’ve loved you
I cannot imagine life without you
I sign off each night, whispering
sleep well, my prince
reverently yours

  1. Aww.. so sweet. I love him in Hachiko. ❀

  2. Greetings Lori! It is hugely wonderful to know someone else feels great affection and admiration, and respect for Richard. And I’m sure what you feel is greater than these words convey. Just wanted to let you know, I totally get it.

    I am curious, to what ‘in Twilight’ refers.


    • Hello Fim! Nice to know I am not alone in my love and respect of Richard.. “In Twilight” means just before going to bed..

      • Hi Lori! Thank you for that. I’m just starting my annual viewing of the movie series, so my mind saw the word and glommed onto it. lol Thanks! My going to bed is more early morning just before dawn. πŸ™‚

      • Mine is the same most of the time… thanks hun

  3. Lori!
    Your love for him gets confirmed.
