Morse code

Yesterday the weather was lovely so I went for a walk around the village green. Unfortunately my phone will not send the photos to my laptop via bluetooth. Both machines are old technology, although 5 plus years in my view isn’t old, and certainly need to be swapped for newer models.

Technology moves much too fast! I don’t like to use the WordPress app on my phone as the thing keeps freezing and the app is fiddly anyhow so I sent them to my Instagram account, which is easier to use, along with a short video of birdsong if you fancy having a gander.

I managed to write four short poems three of which will be for my next book and one I’ll put here as it concerns the fixation we have with our phones plus it made me smile in a “flipping doodles you’re supposed to be out walking with your dog” kind of way while I was watching the person and also writing it πŸ™‚

Morse code

Dog walker
your eyes
hugging that screen
while your free hand is
text, text, texting

Dog stops and sniffs

A momentary glance
behind as you are pulled back to reality
then more hugging and
text, text, texting

Dog lifts a leg
to leave his own message

Dash – dot – dot – splash!
