       Happy day! Noticed when I traveled that people are looking down at their phones, pads, kindles, etc.
    Why lose lookINg around - that's where the real intimate stimulation and we can see what is creation and what we have created

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    Seems like people
    aren't looking
    around any more

    The view of tv, pad
    and text
    many more adore

    In observation
    of this fact

    From this world
    I retract

      Whatever the techniques you used, this works for me. You capture in a few words the new world in which people are connected much through devices and less by their immediate presence.

      technically, i think that the opening line is casual/colloquial while the use of rhyme
    and meter for the second half of the poem is formal, especially with the inversions.

    my thoughts are that that doesn't work.
    & that on the other hand it is quite fitting
    & funny. the robotics of it i guess. and how that makes the statement.

    the poem is just fine by itself without the description, and that's a good thing.

      you said this so well....something that has been on my mind and in my eyes for so long now...people are never where they are anymore...even people walking down the street together; they are usually texting or on cell phones and not talking to each other...sad but true..
    this is short and sweet!

      I really love short and sweet writings. I feel like they always have the most to say. The condensing of the words just makes them more powerful to me.
    I also really love the subtle rhymes. It's not overbearing or childish, but creates a nice harmony between the words.
    I completely agree with what is being said; people seem to just shut down and seclude themselves wherever they go.
    The supposed age of connectivity is such a lie. Sure, we can talk to people hundreds of miles away in an instant, but I feel like it makes us forget to pay attention to what's right in front of us.
