Look Up!

Heads down

concentrating

on their

palm

holding

the screen

below

missing

the smiles

the frowns

the nods

quickly

feet

pitter- patter

down the hall

faster

thoughts spinning

into a web

creating

endless lists

of

tasks

yet to complete

conversations

to initiate

browsing

fingers clicking

chatting

to others

across the town

over the ocean

far

far

away

Ignoring

those smiles

those nods

those salutations

face-to-face

in the moment

the very present

passing you by

missed opportunities

lost interactions

never repeated

lost

forever.

  1. Yes, sometimes when I haven’t had the best of days I like to purposely stop in their path and wait for them to bump right into me and then shake my head at them. Somehow it makes me feel better 😀

  2. I hope they don’t walk into a pole, wait, maybe I do hope they walk into a pole. Then maybe they will look up and see the world beyond the Internet or texting.

  3. It is how I feel everyone in Hong Kong moves in the city. They are always looking at their phone as they walk down the hall or the street, missing so many interactions and smiles and moments.
