Cold

There was a time when we would sit by the sea, and watch the sun as it sets over the horizon. The skies turn from warm, beautiful tangerine to a wondrous violet hue, as we hold a loved one’s hand, and feel the warmth of friendship.

Now, when we see a sunset, we pull out our gadgets, snap several quick shots, and stare at our devices to admire the “great moments” made possible by technology.

When we look up again, the sun is gone, and the air is cold. As cold as the gadgets we hold in our hands.
