Logging on to Love. A Sonnet


The inner software of Light, upgraded the Disc of my Heart,

Thus opening the Windows of my Soul.

Out came a pure and swift Gigabyte of magnificence,

And the old virus-laden frame once steeped in Trojans,

Now completely disappeared.

Light, more Light, this powerful inventory of a USB,

Uploads my stolen inner peace with Delight,

Bards Gates and Apple, augments my soaring to a higher Cloud.

No more malware, spam, and frozen smiles,

The old inner slate has been deleted from the hardrive....

My mind’s new Desktop presentations, are immaculate and supreme!

I almost died with the woes and distress of ‘hate-crashes,’

But now I fly with the Laptop, of a visionary tomorrow.

What better metaphor in this technology-crazed society? Who can't relate the hardrive of their life with that of a computer? I think this is very well done and totally topical.

Voted up, useful, awesome, interesting and shared.

Mary, I forgot the hardrive bit. Was on my mind then ...getting old. Glad you identify. So kind. Much love.

Billybuc, hey, thanks Bro. Playing and teasing around and look what I came up with! Actually, it's my second time. Did the first one a few years ago. A pleasant Sunday to you and Bev.

Frida, thank you. I appreciate this. Say hello to my son when you see him in Maryland. Tall, tanned, handsome and very much like his Father.

I appreciate your contribution, Frida. Much peace.

I have to say I love seeing the word "bard" used so wittily. It took me back to when I was a high school English teacher. It's been a long time since I saw someone use the word "bard."

Hi Stephanie.

I am a poet and used to call myself the Bard of Solace. Now I'm the Lantern Carrier. I try to reach the Heart; to awaken, to inspire, to touch the inner Light. While you would not necessarily think so, 90% of my poems are addressed to God or God in man.

Great to see you once again and happy that you're here. Thanks a lot and pleased that this poem inspires you. Much peace.
