What if you log off

Go out, touch the grass, and find

It's artificial?

    So the grass they use to place on fields in tufts is real. I thought it was fake. Or maybe it is real fake grass. I would certainly panic if my love of nature turns out to be fake. Logging off means getting real. I sure would panic.

    I'd try 2 wake myself up! lol Great job! This piece made me think!!!

    So true, not sure if you meant it but logged off = double meaning. Logged off computer got back to reality find it’s changed Logged off all the trees on the world til nothing remains but artificial turf Any way that’s my take, Congratulations

    Then I have to say that You're on turf. A real grass and dirt football field will have a football coach panic if You pluck the wrong piece of greenery. "MY FAVORITE BLADE OF GRASS! 😧😨😱"

    Oof. I think I would immediately lose my mind. Great haiku and great question!

  • Dharrsheena Raja Segarranabout a month ago

    I'd be like "Cool. When did that happen?" And then log back in hehehe. Loved your poem!

  • Paul Stewartabout a month ago

    That would be some kind of nightmare. I think I would go crazy and then try, even in vain, to find out what the hell was going on! Loved this piece! Always making us think in such a small number of words! :)

    I would blame it on the Matrix! Or better yet, A.I. in the matrix. lol. Outside of that, I would search and search for the real stuff, just to lay in it once more. Loved your Haiku!

  • Andrea Corwin about a month ago

    OMG - that would be horrible! Very clever.

    I'd be heartbroken. Nature is my lifeblood. I can't imagine a world without its beauty.
