Monday Morning Haiku- Power Outage

Candle graphic

Haiku 3.16.15

The power was out at our house for 3-4 hours last night, starting at dusk.  Even our cell internet connection was affected. We sat and read together and it was enjoyable. But it was a reminder of how completely dependent we are on technology, and how that even impacts our relationships.

What Now?

A power outage

Darkness. No lights. No Wi-Fi

Candles lit the room

Together

The power went out

We sat together and read

Candlelight glowing

Memory

Ancient people lived

Without electricity

But we forgot how

-mtroupe 2015

Design

Without light, dusk brings

An end to the work of Day

Now rest, talk, and sleep
