Quintessential, carrier pigeons

Delivering to many regions

We’ve come so far since then

No more, the quill and pen


Vast changes society then underwent

In the blink of an eye, a message sent

A telephone hanging on the wall

One per house and that was all


Now communication instantaneous

Everyone in the room simultaneous

Alexander Graham Bell’s photophone

Precursor to fibre-optics telephones


Your Daily Word Prompt – Quintessential – September 25th, 2018

4 thoughts on “Quintessential – Sheryl’s Daily Prompt

    1. I was thinking in terms of my grandkids and kids. My son isn’t addicted to his stuff , he can put it down. My grand kids are getting there., they aren’t too bad, maybe because I’ve made a point of how rude it is. My daughter, she’s more distracted than the rest, so the kids reminded her of her rule, no electronics at the table. Mwahaha

  1. A lovely tribute to our fast changing world. I remember my grandmother saying how she had lived through the popularity of radio through to the internet – a lot of changes in one lifetime – areal revolution.
