    A nice poem with good rhyme and rhythm. The ways that we use to stay
    connected has just about vanished or are about to become extinct. We
    have lost that sense of togetherness. Do not despair there is still Twitter,
    Facebook, My space, Pintarest, etc. Please read my poem Precious Moments.
    Enjoyed your write Elena. (Report) Reply

    Superb! A chain reaction depicted in so few words! The last two lines make us pause and think. (Report) Reply
