When sending out an I-Phone text,
I listen for the noise
That lets you know your text was sent – 
It’s one of texting’s joys.

The sound is soft and sensitive;
It gently does convey
The fact your message made it through
And now it’s on its way.

A little tiny airy zhwoop
Describes the note I hear.
It’s like a subtle sigh that someone’s
Whispered in my ear.

I rarely text, but when I do,
The part that I love best
Is waiting for my confirmation,
Zhwoopily expressed.

    What a lovely rhyming poem. Since you've read my poems you know that I love Rhyme. What a great subject to write a poem about too. I absolutely adore your poem. Bravo!

    You're farther along with technology than I! I feel I'm missing something not hearing the 'zhwoop!!!.' A delightful piece, with your trademark cadence and rhyming. BRAVO Ilene!! Best wishes, Keith
