The Penny Dropped

This is for all, any or few who use the computer to give, get or find some kind of comfort or fulfilment.

 The Penny Dropped*

This penny dropped minutes ago:
That those who read the po-
etry I write –
Who take the bite by tapping out
A Like or Heart –
Emoji showing taking part –
That they, or she or he
Is somewhere on this round, round globe
Alone and bound
To isolation’s empty ground –
For some a prism in their prison.

Rewarded with a new respect.
In twenty second’s new reaction;
Realization not to share
For any other reason
Than to know that some are there
Under the most extenuating circumstance:
Pandemic’s viruses,
Computer the main avenue
To reaching him, her, you
(Which may be all they see
Throughout a lonely day)
Makes motive purified,
The ego minimized.
