LOW-TECH MARVEL-original poem for Poetry Friday

I do not flash undignified
Blinking for attention
Require fifteen META tags

Prodding your direction.

No need to power-up for me.
I’m cookie, bug and virus-free.
My editor checked snopes for me.
So you can trust me worry-free.

I am your book
Come dive inside.
Release yourself
Let’s take a ride.

Poetry Roundup is at Adventures in Daily Living.


  1. I love it, Jill! A book is so much more relaxing, too!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I'm glad to have found your blog and will be back often.

    I love this poem, btw. I love the feel of a book in my hands and for the life of me can't understand the draw of a Kindle.

  3. Hooray for low-tech marvels!

    (Your line about cookies did send me back to Janet's "C is for Cookie" post...not your fault!)

  4. Thanks Kelly, Tricia and Jennifer:)

    BTW, Janet's Cookie recipe looks amazing!

  5. ha! i love this! so clever!!! one of my very first poems is an ode to books.. i need to dig it up!

  6. I would love a book with cookies, though.

    Great poem, Jill!

  7. I love it, especially "My editor checked snopes for me."

  8. This is very sweet. There are definitely days at my library when I wish there were no computers to deal with, only glorious books!

  9. Thanks Cindy, Kelly, Jacqui, Lisa:)

    Lisa, it drives me nuts when kids come to the library and just play on the computers and then check out a movie, no books. ACK!

  10. LOL! Your poem made me laugh and nod...and now I may step away from the computer...maybe...

  11. Thanks, Tara.

    It is soooooo hard to step away from this blinking box:)
