Our community welcomes us. It holds our dreams and our fears, our family and friends. It sustains us. It is us. One of my communities is Sitka, Alaska. This poem "Message to You" was created from following my writers' group prompt: A Day in Sitka.

As a member of Blue Canoe Writers we were assigned the task of taking a single photograph sometime during the course of a single day and then writing 50 words. I chose to photograph the community bulletin board at SeaMart, a local grocery store. I jotted down words on the various signs that were tacked on the board. I then fashioned a poem from those words. It's a bulletin board found-poem. Enjoy.
