Time and Distance

Social media posts
In the fediverse
Occur “right now”
In my timeline stream
But now isn’t what it seems.

My morning
Your afternoon
Another’s night.
Can my today can be
Someone’s tomorrow?

One hemisphere’s summer
Is deep winter in the other.
Hear me, sister/brother
My language may not
Even match yours.

Stretch that beyond
Our blue, spinning globe
Across the gap of space
Is anyone there
To share these timely thoughts?
