Disconnected

Disconnected

Whether on the wordpress feed, the workplace, or among friends, people disappear for a while.  At times it is tragic.  At others, it’s just the complexity and busyness of life that means we see or hear less of them.  Their return is welcome.  

Disconnected

Disconnected

Adrift

Unhooked

Lost to us and

when

we looked

we a saw a status

blank

and felt an absence where

your place

and face

had been.

Did you also feel

the break

the quake

that made a fissure

spring apart

asunder

where once

you

were seen?

Later the path

came here and

there

and where

you came and went

and returned

towards

us again.

Then we saw

your place resume

your face return

and words spilled

from your

spring

and flowed

to us again.

    1. You weren’t disconnected for long though. 🙂 I had two groups of people in mind in this post. The first are are WordPress community members. The second group are people from work and other places who have been recuperating from chronic physical and mental illness. Thanks for you comments, Damyanti 📮😎
