a poem


High-speed connection
connected speedily
speedily surfing on
exhilaration of waves
high-speed waves
being transported
on crests of information
virtually present on world’s ocean
yet in reality balanced precariously
on mere drop in the bucket
ending yet one more run
exhausted and unfulfilled
contemplating yet another
attempt to conquer all

Slow-speed connection
turning away from fast moving waves
seeking quieter pools of contemplative stillness
mirrored calm gently offering self-reflection
beckoning the spirit to turn energies inward
to forego the manic desire for webs
of world-wide connections
to allow inner wisdom to unfold
