Virtual Reality


I sit in this never place. . .

a space never-ending,

 never beginning.

Always the same. . .

yet, ever-changing.

I am with everyone—

I am with no one.

I am wrapped in a web of being,

hanging in the in-between—



 here. . .


Clicking forwards. . .


opening windows

 to somewhere—

to nowhere.

Too far to reach,

too near to touch. . .

I am a pulse riding a point of light,

a solitary stream.



in millions.


Who are you?

Got a pic?

Can I capture you. . .

on a disc?

See you in my screen?

Hear your voice whispering. . .

Feel your fingers pressing mine?


My reflection mocks me

in the monitor—

And I wait. . .


for your return.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and
    visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Fantastic work!

    Hi outstanding website! Does running a blog like this
    require a great deal of work? I’ve very little
    expertise in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow,
    should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic however I just had to ask. Cheers!

    Thanks in favor of sharing such a pleasant opinion, post is pleasant, thats why i have
    read it entirely

    • I wrote this poem when online sharing was just beginning—I hoped to capture in words the emotions I felt as I began my first explorations of the new and globally trans-formative “World Wide Web”. . .Thank you for your compliment—and for seeing what I still see today. . .
