The lovely Helene of Willow Poetry has challenged us with “What do you See?”. You may write a poem, haiku, tanka or short story that represents what you see or feel within you. More info can be found in the link below.
Hey there, yes, you! Do you remember me?
Come in and visit, the space is free
I’m sorry there’s no chair, for you to sit
I surely hope you and your gear can fit
I have been standing here, quite a long time
I think I’m forgotten, it should be a crime
For not long ago, I had so many friends
Why did that have to come to an end?
Oh yes, that’s right, it’s those cellular things
The ones that make noises, when they ring
But not me, I have one tone I can play
And I happen to like it, a lot, this way
So anytime you get tired, of playing around
Come back and see me, I can be found
On the sidewalk, by the lamplight, near the street
I can’t get up and leave, I have no feet
But you do, so please, don’t leave me here alone
Come back, anytime…
…signed your friend, telephone
