A very lovely piece too - and one I completely relate to. I was on Facebook 3 or 4 years ago, but got sick of it after a few months - we seem now to be more obsessed with the people we aren't with than those we are......oh, and looking good. Facebook was a great idea that's got out of hand (in my opinion).
And your right, pnq is a great place and what's lovely - as your poem states - it is poetry that unites us all here; we all have that, if nothing else, in common.
All the best,
Ben....youre so right..people are becoming obessessed with people thar they arent with people they are with! I have to admit that it was so for me.... it was like a taking control of my perso.n. I now feel a freer and happier not having to "check" my facebook constantly :-)
I agree with your carefully chosen words. I stopped using Facebook too about 7 years ago after it polluted my life. Sharing time with like minded people feels right for me and you too.
I am glad you decided to share your talent again.
Thank you Michael...yes its nice to commune here with likeminded people! I missed being here but had lost my inspiration to write for a while.. then a few weeks back I happenend to stop by..and being fed up with facebook and irs "falseness" decided to come back were "real" people are! :-)
Thank you again for your kind comment and words... and encouragement!
Its these simple words which makes a poem relate-able and make the readers nod their head in agreement. Yes it is a place where we become a family for the love of writing...nice to read your works again Olwin!
