Poetry Magnum Opus

In and Out of Time


Recommended Posts

Toes dig into wet sand on the beach,


dislodging scoops that stay until the next wave


levels the grains as he travels slowly on old legs.


Each bit of matter disturbed carries with it


a makeup of molecules and atoms composed


of electrons, protons, neutrons and God knows what.


The world has changed, as everything does, always.




A solar flare engulfs the Earth, killing ethernet


and electric grids until it fades back into the pull


of great gravity, causing our little rock to wobble


slightly in its course. The balance of system orbiting


shifts like the bits of sand that wash from his feet.


Who can guess what astonomical and infinitesimal


changes occur with each moment of what we call time.




DNA combines and transfers to form another human,


again and again through the ages, each completely


original and independent at conception. Down the


corridor of time speeds reproduction and creation


until two are destined to collide because of similarities


of thoughts and desires and intellectual curiosity.




They write poems.

Wow. My cup of tea. Original fun with a successful incorporatio

un of modern scientific thought in a delightful manner. Loved it!

Thank you, Sir. We can't escape that we humans are also part of this amalgam of whirling material and subject to its laws.

Hi Frank, the last line brought a chuckle. I like the concept of the whole thing.

Thanks to all. Sometimes I think people believe I'm "spacey."
