Befuddled for Sunday Scribblings

The clock ticks.
My heart beats.

My fingers itch
to write a poem

about Twitter
and how it befuddles

me. But I’m as mystified
about how to write

about it as I am about it.
Instead I listen

to time clicking by
on this Sunday morning

in my quiet home
with a blueberry sky

and a mango sun
and a bird outside

my window
tweeting.

Mmm...a 'blueberry sky' on a Sunday morning..what could be better..absolutely 'twitter' should be left to the birds..I love how you turn your thoughts into such wonderfully encompassing poems..I always leave thinking why has nobody else said that before! Jae :)

I love the rapid clickety clack of the lines bouncing down the page filling up my mind of the important things in life like real tweets!

Kylie said...

Very sweet. Mine is quite different but I wrote about writing (or lack of) this week too.

I love the image of the twittering bird in the blueberry sky with the mango sun. Here they are chirping madly, as if by their cries they could bring down a much-needed rain.
So simply beautiful...not at all as confusing as twitter.

blueberry skies and mango suns sound much more preferable than sitting on twitter... time for me to get off the computer and go outside i think :)

Time clicked by very profitably for you there - very enjoyable poem.

A nice take capturing the mood of the day

'A blueberry sky and a mango sun'! What else cann you possibly want? Not Twitter, for sure!

Reflections said...

Love the outside images you have created, vivid expresssions.

Hazel said...

I hardly understand twitter either. Your poem is so much fun to read than following online tweets. Mango sun - wowoweee!

Twitter to me is foreign, it may as well be a bird twittering.

Now that's cute! I like it :) Twitter has always confused me too, but my friends who are addicted to it's far better than any social networking media they know. I admit I partially like it too... you get it done in just about 140 characters! Explore it, you'll start loving it when you start getting all that new information flowing in!

Thanks for your visit Linda :)

I hope you take part in my 'Friends Meetup Party' this Thursday on my blog :)

I much prefer the tweeting birds.

Meryl said...

Great post. I feel the same way. Not sure why Twitter scares me, but it does. Maybe because I cannot quite seem to break down my thoughts into short twits...Regardless, I know exactly how you feel.

I, too, don't get Twitter; I'm just too old for that tech train, I guess. I'm truly enjoying your poetry. I like the way you structure your line breaks and stanzas - and the tone of your poems too. Thanks.
