‘Letters From Over the Fall’ is a poetry project to muse on morphophonemics, the letters and sounds of language; existent some few years now.
It has become part a book of short verse, ‘Marvels for a Wednesday Dawn’: 14 brief pieces intended to amuse or give a little thinking matter.
The lighter marvels are mostly humorous pieces on language and human nature: Mermaid contemporary, If, A tale of progress, Bob the Walker, and Evolution as the world knows it.
The heavier bits would be more linguistically complex to touch on the evergreen themes of poetry: life, language, love, and death.
A marvel may make one wonder. A marvel may make one perplexed – Marvels for a Wednesday Dawn preview.

The statistic Helen, though intent
wasn’t born Hippolyta to befriend:
in common such a little bit
ha’p’orth so petite…
