Naked zombie roams
Haiti, shivering with cold
Dusty feet shuffle

Across cobblestones
Moving to and fro, water
in blood beckoning

Groans escape parched lips
Twenty years under still ground
You’d be thirsty too

Trifecta Weekend Challenge:

In 1937, a naked woman was found limping through the streets of Haiti, unable to identify herself.  

The woman was later identified in hospital as Felicia Felix-Mentor ~ a woman who had been dead for nearly twenty years.

A real live . . . dead zombie!  😯

Aah . . . that’s better!

Do you hear that strange sucking sound?

slp*slp*slp*slp*slp*slp*slp*slp*slp*slp

That’s the sand in your hourglass slipping away,  vaporized as a result of your addiction to the latest and greatest high-speed pressurized pasteurized gizmo, game, and/or social media gadget.

Pinterest, Texting, E-mail, GPS, LinkedN, Web Surfing, StumbleUpon, Facebook, Tumblr, FourSquare, etc., have become giant Techno Time Sucks.

The Black Holes of Cyber Space.

There’s an App for That!

220px-Alice_par_John_Tenniel_27The more focused we are on  keeping up with ridiculous fodder tossed around by others, the less time we have to live.

We cannot add minutes to our lifespan the way we can with our family plan.

The minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years  we spend glued to screens in an ever-deepening hypnotic trance can never be reclaimed.

Time, once sucked down a Techno Turnip Hole, is water over the dam, gone for good.  Or bad.

When we stumble away from StumbleUpon, express disinterest in Pinterest, opt for Real Time Face Time (rather than patrolling Facebook), we reclaim the reins and can tune in to what really matters to us.

Can you hear me now?

Aah . . . that’s better!
