Big Bash Competition 2017: Connections
What Can Connections mean ?
Missed Connections a little love story.
The train was late
Her connection was early
Late for work she was feeling surly.
Young man at the station smiled
Somehow he calmed her temper wild
Would you like a coffee he enquired
Yes please she replied suddenly so tired
He said he’d seen her many times
Winter cold , rain, fog and even when the sun shines.
Waiting for the next connecting trains
They sat exchanging phone numbers and their names.
Soon their meeting’s became the norm
They met at dusk and they met at dawn.
Weeks became months and then to years
They announced their engagement to station full of cheers!
So their missed connections became a boon
Making them a blushing Bride and handsome Groom.
The wedding was a splendid day
No missed connections anyway!
Computers wizz us round the world spreading news good and bad
Oh sometimes I wish for gentler days when letters were all we had.
No one shouting loud and proud about their wonderful lives on Facebook
Now I know it can be fun but how much info about Ada’s lunch can we really brook?
Everyone is so busy networking,Twitter, Linkedin and Instagram, do we still really speak
Communications so vast, is it a blessing or a curse, is it the answer that we seek
The truth is I am not sure if all the information sharing makes life worse.
I am not an Ostrich with my head hidden in the sand, honest that’s not my curse
Only sometimes it looks like everyone is having fun when our own lives are bland.
Never before have we had , news,gossip or connections so easily to hand.
So let’s maybe put the brakes on and make connections by sharing a hug.
Well the above Acrostic poem maybe sound rather anti connections but the truth is I have found so much warmth and support from the connections I have made here on WordPress. Last year I attended the Bloggers Bash with trepidation only to find that everyone was absolutely lovely and as they seemed on line. This made me very happy that I had been brave enough to make the connections.
Hugh and Sach
Geoffle and Ali
OH! so pally
No airs or graces
Names to faces
Drinks and food
All in the mood.
The day flashed by
So happy I cried.
It’s a Smash!
Yes I can say one of the happiest days of my life.. barring the obvious, births, marriage.
Now the above were happy connections .
Well I think I have said enough , I would love to say thanks to all of the wonderful people I have connected with here at Wordpress…virtual and real.
