ONLINE

We don’t seem to speak much with people on the phone these days. Instead we instinctively tap on messaging apps and text each other.

This is another random musing I wrote, inspired by our second nature behaviour of letting our fingers do the talking.

ONLINE

Green light’s on

… Every pulse …

Connecting you

And me

I

Sense

Your teasing smile ; )

Laughing eyes ^^

The ebb and flow

Of words

In your mind

As the text races

To and fro

Across the unknown abyss of

Space and time

Leaping~~~

With anticipation

Onto your screen

And mine

>>>

Downloading…

A still

A video

A moment in time

We laugh : D

Decibel scale: !!!

But

I can’t hear you

Can you hear me?

_Idle_

Unembellished silence

Because

The last word anyone needs

is

“Goodbye.”

I’m back in school for my full-time graduate studies after a long, long time.

Here’s my ode to the essential furniture in any student’s life.

Ode to the Study Table

The tabletop is but a stage
For the rotund pen holder
Who wisely takes the form
Of an erudite owl
Brimming over with ideas
To be put to paper
And awaiting the day
When it finally brings change to the world
~
A clear, empty glass
– Is it truly empty, I ask
Perhaps it is already full
A liquid that looks solid to the fool
Alas, the eye is too weary to see
Beyond a skin so crystalline
To realise some things reveal their true forms
Only in the deep recesses of the mind
~
A MacBook clammed shut
From the ennui
Of surveying the digital ocean
At the command of your fingertips
Combing through terabytes
Of gobbledygook
To fetch you the pearl that
You cannot hold
~
Bent double but no trouble
The light will shine forth
From the humble table lamp
When the night falls
And illuminate the scribbles
On the yellow sticky note pad
That records memories you cannot keep
In your overburdened head
~
The mouse sits still and ponders why
The MacBook ignores it, no matter how it pries
The owl’s eyes are open but its mouth stays shut
Even the lamp decides to let darkness preside
It is now time
To turn in for the night
Let the gentle curtains turn away
The visiting moonlight

Watch the world pass us by / Four of you and a snow-haired I (cc-nc-nd)

One, two, three, four, five
Dogs and people trotting by
See them going round in circles
Makes me wonder what they’re after

Sunday morning’s better spent
Sitting on this little wooden bench
Watch the world pass us by
Four of you and a snow-haired I
