    A shared memory / Losing touch

    A tiny piece of my past
    that makes my face flush red
    just to recall it silently.
    An anecdote I donít recount,
    nor will I ever wish to.
    You, my accomplice
    , just a name to me now
    in a list of friends
    on my laptopís screen.
    Perhaps you wouldnít remember,
    if I saw you today
    in the flesh;
    Though thereís always the risk
    that you might.

    This is a down-to-earth reflection on those social media like Facebook and Twitter, or like the one I have on LinkedIn. I wouldn't recognise most of my "friends" either, and have often wondered why I bother.

    I can't seem to access your wordpress blog either...or it is empty...

    Thanks for your thoughts Dreamwoven. I'm not sure why my wordpress wasn't working when you landed on it - it isn't the most visually exciting of landing pages, but there should be links to many different poems and ramblings of mine there! Best wishes, Jonathan

    Thanks for that reply, Jonathan. Th e blog is divided into two parts, on short stories and poems. I tried again today, but both topics seem blank.

    This poem makes me curious about what it was the 'accomplices' did
