Long Distance Call



image by Sarolta Ban

your voice
long distance call
one on one connection
whispering across the meadow
I speak
~
your words
touching my heart
lying amidst daisies
plucking each petal of softness
sighing
~
 hello
reaching for you
across the distant miles
together we communicate
as one 
~
calling
heavenly clouds
intertwining our thoughts
receiving hidden messages
we talk

  2. Very cool. I love the way the form of this poem captures that near-and-yet-so-far-away vibe of a long distance phone call and the words you have pinned within that form - PERFECT.

  11. When you can not be together, the little whispers over the phone, the little messages can keep you going - until you can.

  15. This reminds me of a local movie "Moments of Love" that I watched years ago. It's an insteresting film about two lovers from different times who developed an intimate connection to each other via an antique telephone. The story is told with an unusual & almost too impossible to happen setting, but you know moves in mysterious ways. As always, I enjoyed my reading in here, Truedesa. Thank you!

  26. I love the second verse especially. The idea of savoring (or perhaps analyzing) words like plucked petals.

    1. Thank you, the second verse spoke to me as the phone rests in love - me - love -me nots...

  27. A telephone line's like a lifeline. Two can be so far apart yet so close together. Intertwined in a common bond of the beckoning call.

    Another thoughtful and emotive poem. Thank you, my amazing friend.

  29. How soft and tender. Your reference to daisies makes me think of the child's game of pulling off petals while saying, "He loves me, he loves me not."
