The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 64 - Poem by Flying Lemming

I’ve taken to spending more of my time
Being somewhere else instead of on-line
Every other day I give myself a break
And I’m not sure what conclusion to take
Am I starting to tire of the glare of the screen
Do I think there could be more to life’s scheme
Is the technology starting to grind
Do I need a release to open my mind
Could it be that my time is so thinly spread
Or just that it’s cold and I wont leave my bed
Maybe it’s just that I gain inspiration
When I am at a different location
Does the keyboard seem scary and hungry to me
Does my mind need the clean fresh air to be free
Do I feel like the outside is where I belong
Is it too much effort to turn the computer on

I don’t know what the answer is, I doubt I’ll ever know
But I’ll keep writing these poems wherever I may go
If that’s a good or bad thing I don’t know any more
But I might as well keep going now I’m at number 64

    Checking in from Hong Kong... spending time elsewhere is fun (except when you're picking up a sick husband to take him home) ... Ciao (Report)Reply

    I do like this poem, a sort of sonnet form FL and I do agree that writing online is very time consuming and can take over our lives, but it is also a fantastic tool for the writer and a means of communication. We have to find balance and just because we overuse one minute does not mean we always will, things change for us as and when they need to, or so I have found. I like the way you ended your poem. Onwards and upwards, smiling at you, Tai (Report)Reply
