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 ~~
Enjoy your vacation. Good luck regrouping your thoughts.
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.
I know what you mean. Especially when you can get on-line from your phone. Makes one wonder how people would operate on a vacation that takes you away from all technology.
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.
Good point. Though I do enjoy being able to contact people with more ease. For me, it beats the old days of calling a house phone and waiting for someone to call back.
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. 🙂
I fully agree. It’s like you can’t truly get away because there’s no way to escape.
There really isn’t, but I guess that is live in this modern day. 🙂
I will be waiting! 🙂 Peace . . .
Thank you sir, I think I am somewhat back on track now and will be posting more shortly. I’m feeling inspired finally. 🙂
Glad to hear it! 🙂 Peace . . .
You will be missed but we all need to refuel don’t we? Looking forward to what you birth after this reprieve!
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. 🙂
I can totally relate as yesterday I had a day of reading and a nap!:)
That is what I wish I had done, but alas it was not to be. We all need days like that. 🙂
