Oh, Digital Age

Reaching out to touch someone is different than it was before.
In a matter of clicks we are displacing electrons.
Instead of misplacing hand-drawn ‘do you like me’s,
A page (in a book with no pages) allows us to affirm or deny:

Leaving digital trails, crumbling microchip cookies.

Why Keep the Good Stuff All To Yourself?

Sustain the spark that you’ve kept dim,
Hidden by cupped hands in near prayer.
Candles are made to show light.

Clutching the embers to the chest
Sears the hands with selfish worry -
A burn touching more than the skin.

Instead set it out for others to see
With passion – your new lantern’s oil.

Heartstrings Tend to Know

Untangle the knots that hold your breath
Trapped tightly against your chest

Smooth out the line, too thin to be weighted,
Efforts to sever caught by its artful strength

Cast out the string, baited with care,
And wait with heightened senses

And once you feel the tug,
No matter how slight,

 Follow.
