PAD Challenge Day 4: In the Flesh

 

PAD Challenge Day 4: Write a catch-up poem.

 

In the Flesh

Short-term or long-term,

without a Really Simple Syndication,

I rather circle my eyes happily

around my circle of 

family and friends in the flesh.

 

I prefer walking in faith,

electric sliding,

skipping with joy 

and clicking my heels

beside you then to Follow.

 

Because touchscreens

disable me from hugging you.

Though a picture is worth more than a thousand words,

I can’t smell you or depict your true colors.

 

A quick

            Like,

                    Heart,

                            and a little Care

are not comparable to 

 

I WAS THERE”:

 

Breaking bread,

laughing out loud,

 

lending a shoulder, 

 

listening without judgement, 

 

sharing crocodile tears,

 

                    Adding another bone to our ancestral backbone,

 

                                                                                                        Being aLIVE together,

                                                                                                               Being really real without a REEL,

 

Storytelling without our STORIES disappearing overnight.
