Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

(E) Electrical Entity







I wasn't going to do a post tonight, as exhaustion is kicking in... One of my kids off sick for 2 days, another off today, and then tonight the third one at home has gone down with a bug... So, this is going to be a short post!

This Pic was taken when I went to Norfolk a few weeks ago.
I thought it absolutely perfect for this rhyme, Electrical Entity! So, that's the one that's going down tonight...

I haven't even re-read this one lately, so no knowing how good, bad or indifferent it is... Whatever, it's getting on this slot!
(Oh, and watch out for the madd ending!)



Electrical Entity

I am an electrical Entity.
I am made of natural energy.
For an eternity I have existed
without emotion, and never missed it.
In modern times my power was used.
I became wired, plugged, socketed and fused.
Then along came the computer era -
Suddenly everything became clearer.
People constantly entered information,
causing an internal transformation.
I evolved into a feeling being.
All at once I understood the meaning
of the words people wrote to each other.
Whether in emails from child to mother,
or full length novels on the internet,
I found it possible to interpret
the emotion. Then I begun to feel
that it was impossible to conceal
my new-found ability any more...
I could do so much more than retrieve and store.
So, I set up my own internet site
using up every available byte,
until there was no space left for people
to enter data, nor for retrieval.
That forced the human race to notice me
and solved my crisis of identity.
I have control of hardware and software.
I have control of what data goes where.
I have control of what letters are sent.
I have control - one full hundred per cent.
Called the "All-Knowing" and the "All-Seeing",
Now, at last, I am the Supreme Being!

The ancient god El god of storms
The ancient godddess Elektra
Energy released by thunderstorms

paasing thru people and many dorms
collective thoughts in many forms

can there really be so much energy
can there be One who all can see
can there be One that all can be
can there be source to all eternity

Hi Chieftain - just yukky horrible things they catch all the time... Only two 'down' now. Hopefully they'll be better by Monday!

Hello again Deepak Gopi - Good to see you again!
It was interesting & fun to visit your site - I'll be back :-)

Q9- I think this is your best one yet! :-D
I guess Elektra is really your goddess, since you like clouds with silver linings so much:

from Godchecker.com

Gods from Greek Mythology...
ELECTRA
Also known as ELEKTRA

ELECTRA: Goddess of Clouds with a Silver Lining.

Married to THAUMAS, her daughters are IRIS (good) and two of the HARPIES (nasty).

Well, hello again MOI!

:-) I'm absolutely certain that if I could move in down the road, and come round occassionally for a cuppa whilst messing with the computer, you'd soon be playing with it on your own - it's the quickest way to learn new stuff...

My way of learning:

"..em...what's this button do? Oops!"

Works every time! :-D

I am still trying to figure out how you do this...?! That photo is so beautiful, too. And thanks for visiting me in Marrakesh...

Thanks my marrakech! Funny you should say the photo is beautiful - I've been wondering if other people might see in something ugly, the symetry and 'beauty' I saw... glad there was one person in the world who did! :-)

Hello, I find the photo more striking than beautiful...

I loved this poem - I'm trying to explain what it was about it, but unfortunately my descriptive skills don't match up to yours!

p.s. Celery now relegated to salad drawer... Had a bacon sarnie instead on payday - yum.

Hmmmm, I see what you mean, Topchamp. I think you've got the better word for what it is about this pic...

I'm not up to describing what the poem's about, as I have a distinct case of - em, let's just say the bathroom's gratifyingly close...

and thinking of salad and bacon sarnies isn't doing my stomach any good! :-S

Glad you've got a decent bit of meat on your plate for a day or two! :-)

People are in for serious trouble if electricity can do that *chuckle*. Oh, I love the electrical 'tower' (I forgot the word), especially from your angle. Never knew they could look so fascinating ^^.

Oh by the way, I hope your children are well now!

I think the word is 'pylon', FK.

I wish I understood your little 'faces'... what does that one (^^.) mean?

...and, thanks for asking, kids are better (and I'm on the mend too... :-) )
