A Microsoft-inspired Poem

Perhaps I was on my computer too much this week.  Or maybe it’s just that I’m becoming a true nerd.  I’ve been married to one for over twelve years now.  But I was moved to write this poem tonight.  I know I don’t quite cover all the Microsoft programs but I hit the highlights… MICROSOFT-inspired …

Drifting

On occasion I write poetry…just whenever the mood or circumstance strikes me.   Some of the words are ignited by an event or moment.  Others come completely from some place inside me (and I truly don’t know why).
