Communication and The Lost Art of Conversation
I’m here in a restaurant, no one is talking
Peering into their hands
Their iPhone, their iPad, their electronic Screens
The screen that takes them away from reality
To other worlds of fantasy of dreams
Are they free or caught in a trap?
The world of lost communication, of direction being re-directed
Friends, families and loved ones
All heads down, fingers moving swiftly, click, click click
Sitting together with no conversation, no signs of life
All lost in their own little world
Worlds of self
Worlds of fantasy
Worlds of intrigue
Worlds of gossip
No love, no compassion, no cares here
In and out, one sight then the next
Moving on with no loyalty and no love lost
Today number one, tomorrow dead and gone
No face-to-face communication, no words spoken
Growing up, and growing old
No life skills, no interaction
All signs of visible life are lost
Confusion reigns and body language gone
The selfie to show whom you are
But are you that selfie or is it fake
Your alter Ego taking control
Where will it end?
The corporations richer, manipulating our fingers to their hearts desire
More controls over us, our thoughts, our lives
The lost art of communication
Namaste with Love
Agreed! This is beauty! Communication with the spirit has been replaced and commoditized. There is truth behind the eyes. Much love for this beautiful post. Xo!
Thank you 🙂
😦 Sad indeed and so hard not to notice when it seems to be everywhere
Yes it is sad, I just hope people will start to realise that we need communication and face to face conversations in our lives in order to bring about peace.
Amen to that 😉
Yes sad world we live in at the moment.. we think we are progressing but to what? ..
Take care Mark
I agree Sue, progressing to what, in many cases I think were moving backwards.

so sad..I realise it more and more, and do my best to keep my phone away, but it is not always so easy. It’s like they have taken over our world..
I know! we are becoming a faceless society, heads down and walking / rushing forward to nowhere!
