That's me! My head is spinning after my latest "Microsoft moment." I thought I had a software problem and completely reformatted my hard drive only to discover it was a hardware problem. Ah well. At least I had everything backed up, and it wasn't too bad to get my files and programs in their proper places again. Time for some culture to clear the air…a poem I've written for a workshop.
Earthly Spinning Globe
Spinning blue globe, dancing through space
Magic above, Magic below.
Welcome to Nature's other face
People to see. Places to go.
Earth, people, animals, plants, bugs
God's fantastic orchestration
Flying, running, pushes and tugs
So much going–consternation.
Winds blow, sun shines, violins strum
Reds, blues, oranges, too blinding
Melodies play while people hum.
Grasses sway along roads winding.
So much confounded commotion
From creatures huge to bugs minute
Sensory overload in motion!
Earth travels blind through infinite.
