Green Dots


I see those green dots to the right

they mean you, you and you are here

I see all the names standing at the dots

there's your, your and your name

I see the tiny photos next to the names

they show you, you and you are here

I see the dots, the names and photos

there's your, your and your profile

Facebook profiles are lined up to the right

but what do they tell you?

The green dot means you are available

to see, to talk to, to get in thouch with

The green dot means I am available

to all my friends on facebook,

but do I know all these people?

Do they want to chat with me?

Sometimes I choose to hide

I hide my green dot

and show the people

that I am not available

How much does that green dot

show people who you are?

A green dot makes you visible to people

A green dot is all it takes

to get in thouch with you

When I see a green dot next to a name

I haven't seen for a long time

I know that the person still is out there

breathing the same air as me

watching the same moon as me

getting blinded by the same sun as me

but we don't chat anymore

like the way we used to do

Even if people are only a green dot away

you don't need to get in thouch with them

and let them break your heart again

I am happy right now

I see green dots on the screen

I know who I need in my life

and some people are just history

and their life is just

a green dot in my life

So, you'd better be careful and

watch out for those green dots!

I see the green dots, too but rarely to I initiate a chat. You're right. Sometimes all you need is to know they are there.

Hi Made. I make sure I don't see the dots, then I don't have to contact or be contacted. Miserable me I suppose.

Great words here and keep the those you love in your life. People are not all the same. Sometimes you can choose your friends and not your family

Only a writer could write a poem about Facebook green dots. This poem say so much, Made. I was struck by the flimsy nature of online relationships...people are diminished to some pixels and dots instead of flesh and blood. Nicely done my friend.

sending you a hug from Olympia

Bill, I'm not sure I deserve a nice comment like that, but thank you! I prefer flesh and blood, but I'm glad you are my facebook friend. :)

I don't often initiate a chat either, but this hub is truly unique. I would have never thought to write this and I really think you did a wonderful job.

Hi Pamela, I'm not sure how I came up with this idea either. It wasn't anything I planned. Thank you!

Interesting poem. We can say that green dots are friendly dots.
