Tapped messages go out direct
With phones it's an easy connect
Thoughts from a finger
In cyberspace linger
But touching's too much to expect

You are a marvel at writing Limericks Duke! You have many that are my favorites but I think you have hit this one out of the park, along with many others, I have to fave this one! : ) Have a spooky Halloween! : )

Connie, thanks! I try writing from the heart and from experience as an observer of behavior. The world is changing ever faster and faster.

ok, this was your best since before 2013 when I commented on it back then. Let me check out second best according to Soup. (I would say you have done even better than this one in the past few years)

It's a strange world. Hope to see you around soon. Be well--you are an incredible poet!

OMG, Kim--this was written at a time when I rarely responded to comments. I try to be much more responsive today. The world we live in is changing dramatically. When I travel, I see so many people using cell phones for communication while totally oblivious to their surroundings. You are always welcome. Inspiration is a funny thing, some moments just stand out and make me want to write. This hasn't been happening very often lately. Now, your poetry is wonderful, and I will visit you often.

Oops see above. There must be something strange about this site that causes me to respond in the wrong box at times. I have to laugh at myself.

Going through your Limericks to find one's I haven't read. Yes we have replaced touch with electronics. Thank you for all your kind comments on my poems :)

Nice limerick, Duke. I should try my hand at it. You make it look easy but I find it hellishly difficult. Keep 'em coming, my friend. :)

You truly have a gift for limericks. I have read through most of the work you have posted and found the pieces quite delightful. Your poems are very witty and memorable. I am a newfound fan.

Dear Duke, thanks for all the lovely comments and for reading so many of my poems today. I have to let you know, I will have been married 38 years this Aug, not 40, but I take poetic license to fit a syllable count! I am sure you know about that. We have to do it all the time with limericks!!! Let me see if I can find some limericks of yours I have never seen.

Quite clever indeed. :) Duke, I also stopped by to deeply thank you for continuing to warm my heart, inspire me, and just make me feel like I am cared about and special. You are such a lovely person and I am really thankful to have this connection with you; it may only be through poetrysoup that we connect, but you connect with me far more than people that are in close proximity to me. I adore you! :) Take care

Hello Duke, I'm not much of a text expert. However, I think the phones are much easier. By the way, it was an honor reading a poem from a poet name Laura B... It was a true enjoyment in reading her dedication to you. I also came here to thank you for the kind comment on my poem. I needed the uplifting words... always~ LINDA

Hello Duke, I love your limerick, but that's nothing knew. :) Thank you so much for sending your extremely kind words recently. Sure- we may not know each other- but I can totally say the same for you. You have left an impact, and that makes you one of my dearest friends. :) You are wonderful!
