I was going to take some time today To write of many things I opened my notebook and flipped through ink marked pages unable to find a fresh landscape from beginning to end and in one breath of in and out I put it back on my little shelf and I almost gave up So I went to my tablet and swiped to my app Excited to grab my pencil and scribble my virtual words on virtual paper and save it all in the unseen cloud of 1's and 0's But it needed an update So I waited and while the little blue line filled I played a game or two, okay, maybe three and then a warning BATTERY IS LOW The tablet was dying and so were my hopes Back it went on the desk connected to its umbilical cord of energy and I almost gave up One more try One more way One more thought I pinched the little plastic slider on my backpack zipper between thumb and forefinger Pulled it open and reached inside to the thin pocket in the back Grabbed a fistful of metal and pulled out my last chance I held my computer like it held the life giving water to make a wise choice Now it's happening "Get ready words because the faucet is opening and you are about to flow!" I walked to my chair Sat comfortably near the open window Placed my right thumb in the little groove and pulled the lid open on potential Excited to finally get some words out The screen was lit So was I But not like that I was beaming One step closer I got and just to be sure I wouldn't get interrupted Checked the battery level I'm good It's full Click, Click here Click, Click there The app was opening It is finally happening Until I was told, in letters so bold My password was Wrong I tried again. Wrong. I tried another. Wrong. But that's not possible. That's not fair. One more chance at salvation. Forgot Password. Now I'm waiting for the reset. and I almost gave up.
