Haiku Friday 2/6/09

Haiku Friday
俳句の金曜日

my heart jumps for joy
online friends to become real
can't contain myself

saturday nashville
four or more I get to meet
at long last, such joy!

(then there are two more
the following week or so
more on that later!)

i've tried to explain
sometimes feeling like a nerd
not all folks get it

blogs connect people
through words and poems and pictures
sharing lives and selves

my monitor's seen
tearful eyes and great big smiles
while I've read along

these are real people
they're online friends, but they're not
imaginary

  11. Perfectly describes how I feel about my online connections. Others don't always get it, but it does not diminish the joy I get from each of you.
