He is the genius
whose first green
has been a rainbow
in a wet bough.

He has released a shy typist
to break barriers
and fight dragons behind minute keys.

I cast to trash
templates of time wasted.
I open up drawers
and share chains

of words
with sisters and brothers
of worlds
never ready before.

My fingers tickle soft keys
in messages of sweet breeze
to hush-hush crowds
atop the clouds.

He is the guy.
He has winged my flight.
On the mirror of a screen
I see my face gleam
As he and I rise upstream.

One thought on “HE IS THE ONE

  1. Actually, the skeleton for this poem came to my mind the day Steve Jobs died. I hated typing papers, research proposals, compositions using a typewriter. It was boring even when correcting tapes and erasable paper appeared on the market. The advent of the MacIntosh turned out to be a blessing. I became an Apple fan. Sometimes I ask to myself whether I would like writing so much without the Macs.
