Look at the photo and make a choice....
Do you prefer the human voice
Blaring into your waiting ear?
Or do you prefer a gaze that's dear;
One that makes you forget the people round you,
And makes you so glad Mr Right has found you?
Do you prefer the idle chatter
Or a look that says volumes that really matter?
Do you like text to do the talking
And your fingers to do the walking?
Or would you prefer a gaze that's true,
And 'speaking' with eyes when words wont do?
This clever photograph can't disguise
Which of these girls has won the prize.

Such fun!
Personally I HATE cell phones, don't own one and wish quite a lot of other people didn't!
You are so inventive!

Darlene said...

I certainly would prefer the gaze.

I don't own a cell phone either and if I did it would only be for security reasons.

Very nice poem!Have a nice weekend!

Ruth said...

You have a fine way with words! I have a cell phone which I keep in my car for emergencies. Give me human contact please (but I do enjoy meeting people in cyberspace too!)

Patty said...

Wonderful poem and terrific photo.

Merle said...

Hi Brenda ~~ Nice poem and I think most of us prefer the face to face
gaze and communicating.
By all means, use the Koala story for a poem. Take care, Love, Merle.

How neat is this?

Such a clever and provocative use of the letter "C".

I enjoyed the contrast in these picturs and your words.

Very poignant.

Thank you for linking to Alphabe-Thursday.
