Each packed with parents and kids,
each face-to-face with someone,
or some thing.
One finds delight in a portal
to endless entertainment and pleasure.
The other delights in laughter
and the pleasure of one another.
One passing the time,
the other embracing time,
squeezing each moment and drinking up every little smile.
One with glowing walls — mute faces.
The other fills the air
with bubbling conversation
smiles and touch fill the spaces
of their hearts.
Both close as family,
but only one living as family.
About the poem….
We all struggle with choosing to smartphone or not to smartphone in front of our kids and friends.
During life’s most precious moments of connection and conversation, it’s so easy to slide into the screen slump. It’s become habit for most of us.
Inspired by a real story, “Two Tables” is meant to inspire you to live fully and to embrace people more than your phone.
