MS Windows Ver. Photosynthesis

In machine code
Of an operating system
Is an intricate set of operations
In forward flow – fine-tuned by evolution
Like the program called sunlight
Downloaded from the heavens
And run as lines of code

After all
The enigma of what is
Sun-powered and water-harvested
Is only an operating system
Named photosynthesis
Which boots life
To the turquoise sphere
Of a pirouetting Gaia.
