any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
oh, what would we do if we lost our Internet the worldwide -- indeed, it would be like the Earth no longer spinning!loved the repetition here.
ugh, I tell ya, so many people on twitter were goin' wild... Internet is has it's ups, but it also has plenty of downs; one is how attatched we get to it, we don't know what else to do when a fav social media site is down - shakin my head...
Your poem made me smile, Sumana. While I could do without Facebook, I know I heavily rely on my devices and would feel lost without them.
Hah hah nice take!! fb has become so much of a part of urban life
Lovely thought :) Facebook seems to have taken a place in our lives (even in the lives of grannies ) and I think it could be a good thing :)
Nice triolet. At least with poetry blogs , we are being creative using out intellects,writing form, grappling with serious issues expressed in our work. Facebook and twitter I will never belong to and I will also never own a smart phone. I spend so much time on the poetry blogs already . I do not know how anyone has time for anything else. Good choice of topic Sumana.
I am not into FB or Twitter but I can imagine what it would be if its down that people feel like - The Earth stopped spinning yester night ~ Clever use of triolet with rhyming verses ~Grace
Oh - horrors indeed! I am surprised the world did not come to an end totally...with FB being down for half an hour. Smiles..
i gave up FB three years ago...i am so infrequent on twitter it is a wonder i can remember my password....so many things i really dont need to know, you know.
I held off on FB for years, but after retirement, I found old friends from 40-50 years ago, & it has been a joy to reconnect with them. I use it like a blog now, sharing unique images, my poetry, my movie reviews; & Twitter is my primary dVerse connection. Yet when I vacation, I go weeks without peeking at even my email; nice use of triolet for the repetition response.
This is really clever - made me smile.
I smile, Sumana. I drift in and out of FB consciousness, but am never at a loss for it. But this was a truly enjoyable read.
Your triolet made me smile too..how odd is the appeal of facebook and how insidious. Repeat lines here make it very effective.
Topical, clever, witty and perfectly formed - a very fine triolet :-)
true words forming beautiful triolet..very nice sumana:)
The repetition in this piece drives home how slavishly we have allowed ourselves to be ruled by this strange “social” entity. Well done!
i once loved the whole social media idea but so tired of fb at the moment... too many things going on there that i get mad about...
Yes, it was a startling experience! I like this serio-comic treatment. :)
I can't quite explain why, but I had a sense of Kermit the Frog speaking this piece all grand-like into his microphone. (And as such, it was snorting-ly funny to me:)
Nicely done Sumana, so long as you don't want to get off when it stops spinning.
This was well crafted. Especially considering how internet addicted so many of us are
Good writing here. :-) I would have cried a "bit" too if FB goes off for long. :-)
*smile* It used to be the neighbouring store, where people gathered and exchanged "talk". But then the society lost hold, and we were isolated from each other. That urge to count will not disappear, though, so Facebook will live for a while.
