Back to Basics

Let’s eat dinner at the dinner table

Phones in the middle


face down


Let’s play outside

screens powered off

Roll in the grass

sun kissed


Let’s give our time away to others

Float in only one universe

tuned in

lost in the moment


Let’s say all we feel

without a wasted breath

I love you

Life would not be the same without you


The world aches for concrete connections

that glow

Where darkness threatens the light

the flicker remains


– Breelyn Shelkey
