My digital home
Not a place where you throw the gates open
And barge in, demanding, but a place where
You hesitate, take a peek before you're
Welcomed with open arms. A place where
You realise poetry is not something you write
With nothing to do but the art of making
Nothing into something, no one into someone
Whose electronic words the world has ears for.
Here, you wear your words as a cloak,
Your ideas form your skin, here is the two-way bridge
Between the saplings and the trees, buds and blown flowers,
Here, in our little corner of the orange world, is a shelter
From life's chaotic ways, a silent room and also
An ardent audience, to express your feelings
And build your identity, word by word, drop by drop.
