Nonexistent Pages

I write this poem and send it across the white nonexistent pages on a screen of tiny pixels, and wonder what causes it to remain while a grayish color followed by a scene appears, and I am asking, “Where does it go when…?” I vigorously tap the “enter” key and watch while it floats into the nebulous world of the WWW, only to reappear far away on a small computer, legible and clear, in India, Malta, the Isle of Man. Marvel not that your words came to me here, showing themselves a world away from fingers that firmly typed them lovingly into nothingness.

I really like this one "I vigorously tap the “enter” key and watch while it floats into the nebulous world of the WWW," Especially that part.

It is true, you know. Did you ever wonder how such at thing could be?

A true miracle of technology, hard to believe its seconds to send around the world. Yet years ago we'd write it, put in an envelope and head to the post office then 2 a week later it arrives at the recipients address, how we've come on. Tom

Yep, Tom. I remember when I'd submit poems to magazines and it would take forever to get a response. Nowaday, it's mostly all done through computer. I submitted to a newspaper last week and got a reply from the editor the next day. I was startled!

Thanks, Deb. It is sort of miraculous, isn't it?

Thank you so much for your response, Unseeking Seeker. It is amazing how we type words onto a screen, press "enter" and they wind up all around the globe!
