A Connected Woman


fingers tap and wing
across lettered keys
opening the portal
to a muted world
and
she's connected
and
vulnerable
to the sudden influx
of virtual life  
a babel of written vocals
lovely friends
and friendly love
painful words
and undeserved pain
to unheard LOLs
captured in fleeting seconds 
private stories in pixels
backstairs confessions
and perfect moments shared
in one hundred forty characters
she's a connected woman
even as she disengages
and her fingers
leave the keys

  2. words...thoughts
    shared in waves
    so many without a face
    creating connections
    that expand us
    beyond the keys

    beautiful my friend
    lovely flow

  4. I enjoyed this. And isn't it amazing how we can transport ourselves around the globe without leaving our homes. Now, that's ticketless travel :)
