Old school IBM keyboards had such a satisfying sound.
It was like the beat of a factory.
Beats to make words.
Words to make rhythm
Rhythm to entice dance
Dance to swirl and travel.
Traveling to your eyes.
Crooning to your soul.

My mind flows to screen keyboarding so fast that when I stop

Silence

My words have been tossed into electrons where
the lack of sound from the key board is like a radio being shut off
Jarring
Waiting

WHo will catch them?

I still use an old school keyboard for my desktop. New keyboards just don't feel...or sound...right to me...

nice post, I liked it. Made me feel all nostalgic.

This makes life feel so much more real when sometimes online it is hard to do that. Validation in prose.

These days I use one of those 'as seen on tv' easy eyes keyboards- even on my laptop. I love the action of a laptop keyboard but I destroy 2 keyboards a year so I think the external keyboard makes my laptop loer maintence. I can't be the only person who buys keyboards 2 at a time.

These words actually happened while I was strating to train dragon speak.

It pleases me that you coupld hear the beat.

it still needs something maybe a hook after silence to lead into the words flying out.

I think of this poem almost every time I'm typing now. A wonderful piece and worth a read. Corgimom's straight to the point, clickity clack, poem:

/flame /music /music /flame
