A Poem for Today – Perceptions and Equations

Perceptions and Equations

Without leaning into the wind,
The swiftness of the spin and
Newton’s theory,
Keep feet firmly on the ground.
Time winds into quantum physics-
Years lessen faster
Until life is shortened
By perception and equation.

But the sassafras and willow
Know only sleep
‘Til the vernal warmth
Spins sap and quickness
To each limb and bud
And Spring wakes now
Eternally new.
