I just popped into my computer room, sat and booted up.
I clicked on a couple of keys and the first thing that caught my
eyes was an E mail form. The first word ~ was Write, ok, I’ll try.
I did not come prepared, did you?
Write is just a word to get started. The keyboard from
Here on will do its job as my fingers tap out their orders
On the keys. If you are watching you will see letters
Forming on the e-mail form. It’s all magical to me.
Up to now it was a matter of following instruction.
For a writer it is just common sense and the brain.
That is not to mention patience, write a line and
Perhaps throw it away, that could be profane.
One must understand the value of every thought
And word. Nothing’s simple to one that writes.
Two letters or ten, It’s the one that fits the part.
The brain must be alert to all that’s in its sights.
Patience is a virtue, so it’s said, if you don’t have it,
Forget the need to write. There are other avenues
To tread. Seek and find the one you are fitted for;
Don’t worry about the other fellow. Wear your shoes.
I started out to talk about a certain magic box
But, I got into writing, I think I’ve found my niche.
I will say this however, if I had no computer,
I am sure, my life would be a bitch.
