    Ladies,

    A good portion of this poem suits us as IndusLadies!

    Friends Without Faces

    We sit and we type, and we stare at our screens
    We can't help but wonder what all of this means.
    With mouse in hand...we roam through this maze,
    On an infinite search...lost in a daze.

    We chat with each other, we type all our woes
    At times we'll band together to gang up on our foes.
    We wait for somebody, to type out our name
    We want recognition, but it is always the same.

    Soon friendships are formed - but - why we don't know,
    But some of these friendships, will flourish and grow.
    We give kisses and hugs, and sometimes we'll flirt,
    In IMs we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.

    Why is it on screen, we are so easily bold,
    Telling our secrets, that have never been told.
    The answer is simple, it is as clear as a bell,
    We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.

    We can't tell real people, but tell someone we must
    So we turn to our 'puters...and to those we can trust.
    Even though it sounds crazy...the truth still remains,
    Most of my "friends" have no faces...and odd little names.

    Hello Purnima !

    What you have written makes correct as well as interesting reading !
    But yesterday, when I got such overwhelming messages, now I see the face behind every name -- looks, no more virtual, but absolutely real ! It was only goodwill & love - so why look for faces ?
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    belated but warm and sincere wishes ...

    Dear respected Mrs.Chitra,

    Here are my belated happy Bithday wishes to you. I owe you an apology and I am sure I am forgiven..you are that kind of person who has opened her heart wide to fill the world with love and happiness, refreshing the parched ground with showers of guidance and direction. In all your loving replies, we can hear your heartbeat...a sure sign of sincerity and care which connects you with all of us.. thanks .

    Its definitely through the stomach that we can reach the hearts, and you pave the way wonderfully and deliciously...you are the chosen one to represent Goddess Annapoorna. May you be blessed..

    May God be with you- to strengthen you
    around you- to guard you
    Over you- to shelter you
    before you- to guide you

    With very respectful regards, seeking your blessings
    ambika

    Thanks for posting this poem, good one, my two cents, we always cling to physical forms and features, sometimes just feeling the positive energy is good enough. We need not see faces. But I agree establishing the friendship and knowing them strengthens our relationship.
