I feel the loneliness in your words. The desire for something familiar but it evades Your reach... grand kids. You have so much to say but nobody around to listen. Yes tech really cones between relationships on many levels.

"A Generation Gap", is an extremely well-written and deftly descriptive piece. With craft and skill, this talented poet has told it how it is. To me, this is definitely a six. I look forward to seeing your next post.

Dear Jay,
Ain't it the truth. The social skills of the young do leave a lot to be desired, but you should take some comfort in that they treat everyone of all ages just the same way. To our generation it is incredibly rude, but I am sure they mean no disrespect. So, from one old man to another, take what you can, while you can.
By the way, nice poem.
Regards
Reg

Sad, yet such a truthful poem, Jay. Take heart in the thought that their cells will showing start going dead as they get older and they will have no idea why as they have never interacted in person. At least you got all of us on Fan Jay. Good poem.

The author's words are sad, true, and creative. I pondered on the words
of this poem. I understand what the author is conveying in this poem.
The poem flows and connects well. Keep writing and stay well.
Have a good week!

So right you are friend, Jay that too many folks both young and old are hooked up and wired in. It's not called the World Wide Web for nothing.

Excellent poem about the generation gap and for those younguns who seem to more interested in tech gadgets than in talking to their grands.

Always enjoy your fine poetry and this is no exception. So keep them coming. :)

Gloria

I sympathize with the message you have conveyed here - I, too, get left behind by those who would rather spend time "on their screens" while I sit nearby crocheting in the corner.
When we were young it seems we were taught to respect and listen to the older folks in the family - it seems this has become old hat.
However, you are correct, the day will come when the young people of today wonder why no one is listening to them.... oh, well!

Isn't that the truth. We are considered "thousand year old turtles", and the young people just plow along in their own lives. All the texting and picture taking drives me nuts. What goes around, comes around!
