Back to Basics

by Breelyn Shelkey

Let’s eat dinner at the dinner table Phones in the middle silenced face down

Let’s play outside screens powered off Roll in the grass sun kissed

Let’s give our time away to others Float in only one universe tuned in lost in the moment

Let’s say all we feel without a wasted breath "I love you Life would not be the same without you"

The world aches for concrete connections that glow Where darkness threatens the light the flicker remains
