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.
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.
