Poem: Virtual or Not?

There is an urge I sometimes get
And that’s to write in rhymes.
Nothing in the high-brow class
Just a few unhindered lines.

This time it came upon me
While waiting for a Zoom.
A session which in half an hour
Would bring Canada into my room.

It’s great to reach across oceans
Getting insights and lessons new.
It helps you stay connected
And take a more global view.

Communicating remotely
Has had to find its place.
Yet, personally, I am feeling
We still need face-to-face.

The triggers you get from others;
The dynamics which can be seen
Are definitely lost in translation
Via boxes on your screen.

Communication is not a blah.
It’s all about exchange.
Sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings
Over a diverse and flexible range.

So here’s to striking a balance
And doing what helps you progress.
Ask everyone involved in the process
To decide on what works best.
