Poetry Friday ... From the Telephone


This five-line poem feels right on so many levels, after the last few days, when we are all feeling so grateful for safety, reconnection, and each other.

It's amazing how much some people can put in 5 lines, isn't it! Thanks for sharing it, Karen.

Yes, it packs a punch in just a few lines.

This poem ought to have a subtitle, "A Poem for Mothers." It perfectly captures how I have felt as a mom waiting to hear from my sons.

And I wonder how much love will be written into a poem about cell phones? This is beautiful, Karen, takes me back to talks with my boyfriend (later husband).

Thank you for introducing me to a beautiful new poem today, Karen. It gives just the right hug after what you've been through this week. Glad to hear you're safe.

Carol, yes, it captured the feeling when I heard from my daughter that day, and Linda, it also took me back to breathless phone calls with my now-husband, too. :)

And Michelle, love that -- "gives just the right hug." Indeed! Thanks so much.
