JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE:  "A POEM FOR MY READERS"

SITTING AT MY COMPUTER YESTERDAY AND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE MY THREE-IN-ONE PRINTER FOR FAXING, I ALSO TRIED RETRIEVING AN IMPORTANT DOC FROM A FILE TO USE AS AN EMAIL ATTACHMENT TO A COMPANY BUT FAILED TO DO BOTH.  I THEN DIVERTED TO MY MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD LOOKING FOR A COPY OF AN OLD HISTORICAL NEWSLETTER I HAD WRITTEN SOME TIME AGO AND SOMETHING HAPPENED WHERE THE DOC I WAS LOOKING FOR APPEARED READY TO SEND AS AN ATTACHMENT UNDER MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD EMAIL RATHER THAN MY ROADRUNNER EMAIL.  YOU SEE, IF I LEAVE MY EMAIL ON ROADRUNNER LONG ENOUGH WITHOUT DELETING OR SENDING ELSEWHERE, IT AUTOMATICALLY GOES INTO MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD.  ANYWAY, SEEING THE OPPORTUNITY TO FINALLY SEND MY ATTACHMENT TO THE RECIPIENT, I TOOK A CHANCE.  THEN I EMAILED THE COMPANY'S OFFICER TO CONFIRM THAT HE HAD RECEIVED IT.  HE HAD NOT.  WHEN I RETURNED TO MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD, I TRIED IT ONCE MORE AND THE RECIPIENT SAID HE HAD RECEIVED THE DOC HE HAD BEEN WAITING FOR.  HE COMMENTED, "I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DID IT, BUT IT'S HERE AND NOW I CAN  CLOSE THE TRANSACTION."  WHEW!

I INSTALLED MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD SOME TIME AGO SO THAT I COULD COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE WHO WERE SELLING SOMETHING ON "CRAIGSLIST," THE INFAMOUS SITE.  SO, WHY AM I WRITING ABOUT THIS TRIVIA?  THE POINT IS, THAT WHEN I GET STUCK WITH SOMETHING I CANNOT RESOLVE IN A TIMELY MANNER, I IMMEDIATELY START TO WRITE POETRY, WHICH SOOTHES MY MIND.  IN THE PAST, I HAVE WRITTEN COUNTRY SONGS BUT I NEED TO STRUM THE GUITAR FOR THAT TO FEEL THE LYRICS. I HAVE 12 SONGS WRITTEN BY ME SOMEWHERE IN A BOX.

"DARK SHADOWS"

NIGHT DARK SHADOWS FALL
SLOWLY CASTING AT MY HEEL
WHILE A HUNDRED DREAMS ABOUND
I AM SLEEPING,  ALL SURREAL

MORNING RISES WITH THE DAWN
I SEE RAYS OF GOLDEN SUNSHINE
HOPE AND BEAUTY PLAN MY DAY
KNOWING THINGS WILL BE JUST FINE

GIVING THANKS THROUGHOUT THE DAY
I WORK ON  MY DAILY CHORES
SOMETIMES  PAUSING TO REFLECT
HEADING FOR LAGUNA SHORES

WHEN MY WORK IS FINALLY DONE
I AM LOOKED WITH ADMIRATION
IT'S DUE TO THE MAN ABOVE
HIS COMMAND AND INSPIRATION

NIGHT DARK SHADOWS FALL
THIS TIME I CAN SEE THE LIGHT
THINGS ARE FALLING INTO PLACE
AND THE ANGELS SING TONIGHT
