Click on the Suricata

My hand holds a mouse. Or does it? Please, take a look into the details.

There are two eyes looking at it.

Heard about meerkats? Yeah, sure. Timon from The Lion King, or the umpteen specimens found at Life of Pi. Lovely creatures, aren’t they? And very quick when moving. Maybe quicker than mice.

A mouse helps my hand move words and images on my screen. I try to grasp them all the time, but to no avail. Only a mouseclick can do that, not my hand.

And every time I look at my right hand, the one that moves words and images, there is a companion looking at it. Or two, if we consider that there is another one under my hand. One looks, the other induces to move.

Most of you English speakers call them meerkats. But I prefer their Latin denomination, Suricata. Try pronouncing it. It does good, sounds nice and funny, like their quick movements. A reminder that nature will be always there, no matter what we humans do, no matter how many computers or software programs or bitcoins we develop. Natural creatures, they will always develop and evolve quicker than we do.

Try and click the Suricata, you won’t forget it! 🙂

Sky of diamonds

All the time I think
of the sky high above,
full of stars and souls.
Every time they blink
up flies a frail dove
that my heart stole.

A piece of me stolen,
a sky of stars swollen…
The dove flies high,
with candor I sigh.
The dove is so frail
but it brings a mail.

Diamonds in the sky.
Stars full of wisdom.
Souls shining bright.
If the dove shall fly,
it will find a kingdom
where there’s no night.
