Bamboozled No More! Notes to Self and Anyone Who Will Listen


Bad Day

So occupied with the bleak
I missed the iris blossom in my garden

 

Modern Romance

Today’s couples share music via iPod:
one ear plug for you and one for me.
It was so much better in the ole days when couples held hands.

 

Observation

Eyes focused on tiny screens,
hands delicately and deliberately wrapped around the latest cell phone…
Have you noticed?
We cradle our phones in our hands the way we once held our prayers and hopes.
