"Keep Calm and Make Poems!"


A flicker of light

Wires being connected

Motors whirring

Fan blades twirling

And then that flicker turns into a spark

Of one’s mind

Saying it’s time for a fresh start

To build on

To get the gears running

The cogs jogging

Soon, one’s whole mind will come alive

In one machine

To carry on for generations


The author's comments:

I remember building a machine with my dad, Morton. I was about 4 at the time, so I was curious and still It involved light. It started as a flicker, but then it turned into a full-out that started the machine. I wondered why, but I loved the idea of lights starting machines. I later learned that mahine was solar powered.
