Anticipation


In hope you open an envelope;
A telephone call can change your day.
A fresh e mail in your inbox
Can mean love is only a click away.

    Beautiful contemporary writing. Speed of art is comparing with the speediest metropolitan life-styles. Simply 3 minutes in hand to love. Simply 6 seconds to like you, and other seconds to propose and to sleep with. So love is at a clicks away. Fantastic. Real irony peeps through the lines. MUCH...MUCH YOU HAVE DONE POET...... Perhaps it is the classic of this time. Rat-race, back-bite behind.....yet love just a click......if necessary that will be purchased. Well-written big idea, but the readers will translate it as their own. Excellent.

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
