Endlessly Searching (tanka)*

Goggle used to be

a narrow wooden drawer

of three by five cards

that would send you to the stacks

to find the knowledge you sought


*Note: I sometimes laugh when I hear a student say, β€œIt took forever to find the information!” Pre 1990 it took weeks to find pertinent information at the library. Find your main book then beginning all the cross referencing to find the information you needed (accumulating a pile of books and articles) to write a report or term paper. Now the library is at your fingertips in your pocket, all the information you need with a few key strokes and arrow clicks. Yes, it still takes times, however not physically running back and forth.

Search engine history all started in 1990 with Archie, an FTP site hosting an index of downloadable directory listings. Search engines continued to be primitive directory listings, until search engines developed to crawling and indexing websites, eventually creating algorithms to optimize relevancy.

*Note: I’ve taken a bit of a different take on the prompt, enjoy the blues musical selection titled The Devil In You by Celso Salim Band, led by Brazilian guitarist, singer and songwriter Celso Salim, the Celso Salim Band presents a contemporary blues sound rooted in the past. With soulful and energetic performances, their music takes on many styles mixing deep blues with hints of soul, country, jazz and rock. Their music is worth a listen.

Queens Call *

he knows his part,

always odd man out

in the deck.


always at her

beck and call

ordered to

join in,


part of some


royal game


he loves when she

holds him to her chest,

when the moments

right she lays him out


she lives for these

revealing moments,

she loves it when

the Joker goes

Wild for her,

she needs him too


She being the

Queen of Hearts

knew the King

had a thing

going with a girl

that managed the Club.


however she

always holds the

Joker, thus she

always has

the upper
