Connected – Triple Tanka


Through our soft-lit screens

We enter a cyber world

Detached and lifeless,

In our incessant search for

Constant connectivity.


There is no escape

From the merciless clutches

Of technology;

We become mindless robots

Devoid of love and friendship.


These connections forged

With clicks and wires and networks

Cannot sustain us;

Happiness is only found

When we talk, touch, listen, live.

  1. Excellent triple Tanka!! Now, I must tell you, many of us made connections with technology and then took it to the next step with video chats, calls, and visits. The friendship is there and deep connections because of our poetic and writing interests. Isn’t that amazing? ❤
