She sits sipping her coffee creamy and strong
The aroma tantalizing even though my fast is already broken
typing out romantic poems that borders eerily on the verge of reality
Her story sparkles lighting up our laptop screens.
He ponders on the social write -up once again
Chewing the cuds of language,feelings and responsibilities
Feeling the deep truth of his words echo
in the response of likes and comments popping up on his walls.
She searches through the myriad images and musical chords
of utterly sensual yet delightful themes
finding lovelier words to describe the human heart ,
the vagaries of fate ,folly and we too live her fragile dreams.
Yet in another world ,he roams with poetic frenzy and a camera
Treading the dutiful lines of familial obligations and social flaws
Cold coffee to perk up his thoughts and evil grins
come across oceans as we share his excited visions.
Lost in the cyber space of networks and blogs,
Freudian theories and poetic forms synchronized
Always alive, his creations emerge from an enquiring mind
reaching us evoking, demanding undeniable response.
To each their own time , space and machine, we type away
connected by the bonds of words and invisible wires
A group assignment in progress, taking poetry to unknown levels
Unseen friends seated at a cyber table, enjoying zeitgeist comradeship.
Dedicated to my cyber friends-
Blaga (1st stanza),Gop(2nd stanza),Maaya(3rd stanza),Mihir(4rth stanza),Harish(5th stanza)
And anyone reading this(6th stanza).
