Treasure Island

Theresa Ann Moore

(1940 / Michigan, U.S.A.)

Wordless World


Providing my two very fluent grandchildren
A means of sending thoughts… a beneficial perk
Increasing accessibility to friends and getting help
Able to join the circle of a communicating network

Hasty disclosures have invited unwelcome splashes
Echoing into the still waters of porcelain white worlds
Saturated communicators were halfheartedly retrieved
Sad rescues were completed… before flushing swirls

These unlikely occurrences have come to light
Both accidents transpired within only a few days
Tell me, what are the probabilities of being struck
By lightening twice in a row…it certainly does amaze

I hope that future caution will improve awareness
Checking pants pockets is a means of detection
Even with insurance… replacement has a balance
Avoid drowning cell phones…pay more attention

    sometimes u know the probability
    still you stay the course
    for the sparkle of the eye
    is more precious than the demise
