wee particles

we particles
two are waves

A human being is part of the whole, called by us "universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences his thoughts and feeling as something separate from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal decisions and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. - Einstein

Poetry serves many masters, not all beatific. Every age gets the poetry it deserves.   L. F.   - Our  nature in its beauty... Einstein
j,g, smiles... on a different line can't hold up to Einstein

Quantum physics has shown that depending on the observer, light is either a particle or a wave. It is a strange power that the observer has, is it not? How we see ourselves and others would have similar consequences, n'est-ce pas? -- the whirl'd turned inside of you, a-round, a-bout, as whirls do, a sigh escaped as you passed, alas, from ecstasy into the crash -- the poet is one who brings a fresh focus to the everyday, fresh eyes to the mundane, with music in the ecstasy of broke-back words in how they fly away off the page in particles 'n waves, with lip-synchronicity and all the metasensory expansions 'n contractions, falling and getting up again to constantly risk absurdity -- well done!
