Absent Though Not Gone

Absent though not gone

A temporary reprieve

Enjoy my silence

Though unlikely to last long

I’ll be back with a vengeance

Time for regrouping

Collecting all of my thoughts

A tidy bundle

Set to explode on the page

For the world at large to see

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

    • Thanks Charles, it really was just the weekend that I was absent, I didn’t even turn my computer on until late yesterday afternoon and then only for a few minutes. I decided instead to go for a swim and relax. I have trouble staying away for too long.

      • Actually, I would love to try that some time. I’m old enough to remember when we didn’t have computers, smartphones, tablets, etc. and we all survived just fine. I really think that these things are more of an addiction than anything else, one which is very hard to break.

      • Agreed, I’m not saying that I would want to go back to the old days (at least not all the time), but sometimes I wonder if it is such a great thing to be “connected” all of the time. I find that being so connected interferes with vacations, my office still calls me whether I am on vacation or not, this I find really annoying. Some of it of course is my fault, I have my company email setup on both my work smartphone and my personal smartphone and I find myself checking my email right up to the point that I lay down to go to sleep every night, that can’t be healthy. Maybe being connected isn’t the problem, maybe the problem is me. 🙂

    • Thank you, this poem, like most everything for me lately was really written for my weekend break. I only turned my computer on for a few minutes yesterday afternoon and didn’t really do anything with it. I decided instead to go for a swim with my wife and kids and I never went back to the laptop. Actually it felt kind of good to take a short break. 🙂
