Lost in the Cloud

Had some pictures on my iPhone,
But they’ve somehow disappeared.
Since I’m not so techno-savvy,
This was something that I’d feared.

‘Course I didn’t have a back-up.
Could have sent them to my mail;
But I let procrastination
And some laziness prevail.

I bemoaned their disappearance,
Thinking them forever lost
And, most likely, in my furor,
There were several curses tossed.

So a friend who overheard, said,
“All this moaning’s not allowed;
For your photos haven’t vanished – 
You can find them in the Cloud!”

What this means is quite beyond me;
Sounds like Esalen or Zen.
I rejected those some years ago
And would do so again.

But though I don’t understand it,
I believe the Cloud is real;
And if it returns my pictures,
Oh, how happy I will feel!

So tomorrow I’ll hit Google
And I’ll find the code to crack
That I need to fly up to that Cloud
And get my pictures back!

    Good luck, Ilene. But - they are only "in the cloud" if you put them there. If they were never sent from your I-phone to someone else, then they never made their way to the cloud. Sorry - I happen to be a little techno-savvy - an occupational hazard. I was a computer programmer before people even knew what a computer was. I was working in the cloud before it was called a cloud. The good thing about your dilemma ... it resulted in a creative and funny poem!

    Look, there's littles bunnies and oh my an apple tree. It,s something what is in the sky when you look up and see. Hoping you find your pictures in the clouds ilene.

    hahaha, my head is IN a cloud. I can barely use the old fashioned cell phone I already have. Hope you retrieve your pictures , sweetie, and keep up with your humor on today's topics!!
