My Joy

My Joy

I see
you on my screen.
Hear your voice, check your work.
But I miss the reality
of you.

Your face --
pixilated --
so close, and yet so far.
No matter the distance, you are
my joy.

  1. Joy, yes! More of that, please!

    Love the insertion of the word, pixilated, into that image. It calls to mind that this is an act of translation as well as an act of teaching, which makes me wonder how many of our f2f interactions are also “pixilated” but we don’t see that as easily.
