Celebrate the Struggle

I've noticed that when I am in a time crunch life intersects and derails my plans? Has this ever happened to you?


TECHNOLOGY

Fails Me 
But 
Leads Me On!

Introduced to me by my poet friend, Donna Smith here.
Format: -12 lines of 60 syllables written in iambic meter 
-3 stanzas of 8,4,4,4 syllables each 
-Rhyme scheme: aabb, ccdd, eeff

When my iMac starts to mutter,
I clear clutter.
A mess I fear.
Strange things appear.

I call the genius on the phone-
In what time zone???
Doesn't matter.
Starts to chatter.

One big, endless conversation,
No oration.
Need to backup.
Go get CHECKUP.

There it is, in a nutshell. Oh, did I mention that I also needed a new router? Now I am having issues with my printer that no longer connects to the iMac. I will need to make another phone call to Optimum now. 

When it rains it pours but I still celebrate the struggle because it will lead me to clean up my office clutter, post my winter gallery, and get a new iMac.


I created a video poem to advertisie the release of Winter Wonderland Gallery 
during 2018 National Poetry Month.
