The sounds of the modern world

On Saturday I posted a quip about losing power and a fellow blogger ‘Traces of the Soul’ responded.  She mentioned that it seemed incredibly noisy when the power came back on.  I called it the sounds of the modern world. She thought that would make a great poem. Hers was posted that same day.  It is wonderful!  Check it out:  “Lights Out!!” at Tracesofthesoul .
