i smell the roses

the grass is greener
now i've heard your voice today

all i could do was laugh
all he did was laugh
when we did connect
i cannot believe
the joy of laughing
from sheer happiness
laughing at ourselves
laughing at eachother
we didn't need to say a thing
we knew, we both had been too silly
in way too much agony
'cause we did not skype for just one day

One Shot Wednesday


  1. Beautiful poem and images. I have to admit, using the word "skype" instead of "talk" took me by surprise. You may have intended it as a slap of modern in an otherwise ageless poem, in whih case it worked. If you did not, I'd change it to "talk" or something like that.

  2. hi Ben, i am still linking all this, but you already found me:) Thank you.
    I use 'skype', because that's what my love and i do, now we are separated by many miles.

  3. i like the contrast...the laughter and lightness and the unveiling of the agony in the end...sorry that you are far from the one you love...nice one shot.

  4. And that skype makes the waiting so worth it.
    Sounds like you are having fun

    So glad you posted at One Shot my friend

  5. Still haven't used Skype... love the lines
    "the grass is greener
    now i've heard your voice today"
    Like the ending too...unexpected. Nice One Shot!

  6. I can feel the joy ...within those words and with sharing as it grows.. I liked the verse .. so beautiful. I also appreciate that you can continue a long distance relationship with so much of joy and happiness which is based on only one or two sense of expressions.. rather than all the five senses the mind has for external inputs... I know its possible but i am sure its hard.. too.
    Liked it..

    So beautiful and I enjoyed the way you moved with the words... creating a beautiful imagery... as well as the enlightneing thought thought..
