Hour 17: Messages

Beside the desolate park

with abandoned swings

and knee-tall grasses

stands an old telephone booth

covered in vines


It’s paint has faded

the wood is chipped

and no one knows when was it

Last used but if you

Look closely you would find


Messages of all kinds…

Written with pen

Or carved with blade

They stand the test of time

Alongwith the old telephone booth covered in vines.

  1. What memories this brings back! I remember those names, numbers, and messages that were such a part of the iconic telephone booths. Gosh, I miss those. Thank you for reminding me through your delightful description
