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

Design

Without light, dusk brings

An end to the work of Day

Now rest, talk, and sleep
