Wireless Armour

i feel the real essence of the moment
as love and beauty blossom
like the fragrant lilies of the realm
like the wandering rose; tasting the digital fruit
on the fertile crescent of the soul

you sing my name
in the virtual world of changing images
of pleasure and pain
of tweets and texts and digital speak
and the daily diet of selfie in the multimedia universe
feeding the young minds
across the radiation divide
showing the intensity
of the attachment on the naked screen

behold the mystery of life
in my orbit of delight,
a flash of wireless armour
against the evil forces and the absolute power
of the wifi beam of light
that penetrates the global network of popular culture…
a flood
of complex emotions
at work
and play
on the electronic whiteboard of time
a totem symbol of seduction
under the cyber moon
