Virtually Yours

Surreal
Things aren't always
What they seem 
We lift our heads and nod
Safe
Behind the words we craft
Steam rises above
Our dining room coaster's
 Images await in
Virtual toasters
*
Strange somehow
These bonds we forge
Like bread we break
Later become the crumbs
 We often toss..
*
Peering through our
Looking glass
As people pass


Along the Internet cafe
Things aren't always
What they seem
~But we'll leave a draft~

I love your sepia colored photos.
The last scenery looks like a illusionism one.

I just read your comment on my post today and had to come back and look at the header again now that you've told me what it is. Good grief, it continues to just amaze me. Almost like a hazy dream or a magician's sleight of hand. But what a surprise to see you have just posted! Oh, I love this poem!! It soemhow reminds me of The Doors, "People Are Strange". It is true that we are safer in blogland than real land! Because we can carefully craft our words and aren't ever taken off guard or surprise. But your words say it so much more beautifully and mysteriously.

Wonderful post and wonderful images conjured by your words. Love your photos too as always ;-) Very cool header. Did you make the heart shape or did that happen naturally?

It is so good you were not lost in the tall grasses.

I was so lucky since being lost both in the virtual world and reality the few days.
