and poetry in the dishwasher
The sad part is - if we are without all the electronics, we feel "lost"! I ran this AM in the city listening to a book on tape. Usually, I scoff at the idea of the ear buds, and say I need to hear the sounds of Nature. I'm ashamed of myself! (But - the book did take my mind off the run, so it seemed to go very well...)
You say it so well. Have missed your posts...glad you are back. :-)
Great juxtaposition of the electronic and the human parts of the world we live in. Nice!
Loved your poem...Turning Into Me!Your posts haven't been showing up on my reader...glad I stopped by!♥...Wanda
I love your poems. Sometimes I feel like a computer and I crash! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Sharla
First time here, thank you for stopping by...i just ca not get over the title of the blog...i love it!
Nice blog, I read through some of your poems and I'm impressed. Open Mics Nights are becoming more and more popular. The people there are so supportive. I went to a writers workshop and the instructor warned about getting too caught up on the praise because then it won't challenge us to grow as writers. For now, the Open Mic is working for me because it is helping for me to step out of my comfort zone just by presenting. I'm currently seeking a writers group to edit and critique my work. I definitely recommend you read your work at an Open Mic. To both help set you free and because the composition of so much art and express makes it a memorable night.Best Wishes,Sofia
I feel that way right now. I'm ignoring my blog. I'm crashing in real life for the time being. sometimes I don't have words.
haha, yes sometimes I think that if I pull the plug from my computer that I'll turn off too :o) great poem!
Never thought of it that way before, but you're absolutely spot on!
Ah, I so relate to this poem. I would now like to shut my laptop and take a walk around the neighborhood. :)
Beautiful metaphor, suffused in a truly marvellous poem; and so true...when we work like machines, we are bound to crash one day.
Great poem Alexis....Renders me bionic...I know the feeling...all day in front of the computer for work and then I go home and crash...right after using the computer lol.
I relate to your poem so well. Brilliant!
I really like this Alexis, I have often got so caught up in working on the computer that it is like an extension of me, so can really identify with this. In fact after working on photoshop once for a long period I actually had the urge to drag and drop something in my garden! Actually the delete button would come in handy too! lol
Alexis, I love this! I feel like I'm about to crash sometimes from information overload! You have such a great way of telling a story with very few words. And I love this new background of the washing machines, that's so funny!Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I love how we're all learning together!
wow. the transfer of energy, i can see a raw mix of science and art here. glad you're back :)
I stopped back by to tell you that I have a little something for you at my blog Hope Whispers...it is under the post "thank you Ruth". Hope you have an awesome weekend! :-)
Yep. Have to unplug and rejoin that place of quiet uninterrupted thought before I can't reboot at all. Enjoyed your visit at The Write Game. Thanks.
i love, love, love the new look. and i love the poem. your words make me sing.
I like to feel grateful for the technology in my life...because without it life would be so impoverished in some ways, but I also hope that I can keep it in check and create a balance...Happy days Alexis
I can really relate to this!
I like the warshin machine background. Yes, and electronics overload me too, very often. Pretty poetry.
Ha! Love it! And totally digging the blog design. So, so cool.
Alexis, thanks for stopping by my blog! It's nice to chat with other writers who are doing it for the love of it.
Where have you been - I thought maybe on vacation with your family? I love your new look - I see you've been busy revamping. Hope to read some more poetry soon. Have a good summer, Alexis.
Hi Alexis, I was just thinking of you, and wanted to say hello. I like the poem. Take care... Annie
