SENTINEL POETRY (ONLINE) #14     JANUARY 2004

DAVID E. HOWERTON

HITTING THIS KEYBOARD

Here in this room with a 25-watt light burning
sitting at this machine
trying to put words to page.
I find a Zen calmness
surrounding each keystroke
and some joy with every line completed.
Does this make what's written poetry?
Probably not, but that's okay.
