The wait

but silently the

crows caw-

atop wires miles high

listen do you hear

the whining the tears

days turn into nights

see all know all crows

listen you must hear

the gossip in the wire

calls for kindness near

why doesn’t the phone ring stop?

I’ve pressed all the buttons.

I’m still on the line

  1. A few years back we changed our phone company. It was a small trial at the beginning, but after fixing the ‘bugs’ it is well worth the discount from the big name high priced service. Cell phone is a back up… but with everything electric if you aren’t off the grid…

    Also it is hard to communicate with folks who have their own agenda and won’t let you get a word in edgewise 😉
