Multi-blog Poetry Wednesday

I have also posted this on Yahoo Profiles this week and linked it into Facebook. Because of the bad news on Twitter I am ignoring posting a link on that site this week. I cannot guarantee how much longer I will post on Profiles. Blogger is daily becoming more and more my blog platform of choice. And Facebook my place to chatter with friends.

Pen Pals

Sitting here
Reading blogs
Sipping coffee
Awaiting dawn.

The world is up
My section not
Chats with New Zealand
Posts to friends in London
IM Australia.

Connected in the ether
Sitting here alone
Surrounded by slumbering pets
My keystrokes fly as digital beeps
Around the world
Between sips of coffee.

Pen pals
Gone cyberspace
Gone global
Morning coffee
With friends in blogland
Before dawn
We share
The World.

Thought I would get my Poetry Wednesday post up before it was Wednesday somewhere in the world. If you have a poem you love or one you wrote you want to share leave a comment here or post your url on my page in Profiles or on Facebook. I will link you in for those taking the tour.

  4. A time will come when no one will remember what it was like before digital it's a wee bit sad don't you think.

  5. Or the world as we know it today, Bev, will come to an end and those of us that remember before digital will have to educate everyone in the basics.

  7. Dear Jacqui
    I am sorry but the link you have to my page does not seem to be working, please can you delete if from your list.
    Thank you,

  8. Happy Wednesday. I posted my favorite Matthew Arnold poem on onbothyourhouses.blogspot.com

  9. Great poem, Jacqui. It describes many of our shared experiences and the wonderful new world of the global village. It is heartening to be able to be part of a global community of like-minded people and be instrumental in joining hands in friendship across the continents through the medium of the internet!

    Around the world

  11. LOL..and I posted mine hoping it was STILL Wednesday somewhere in the world...


  12. Remember the days when we wrote letters and waited and waited for replies - from some distant place?
    And now thanks to technology: this and you have managed to say it all in this brilliant piece.
    Someone, somewhere is thinking of you...........

  13. Jacqui, congratulations on winning the photo contest! That was a fabulous photo.


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
