Below I have 3 "small stones", as they are called, that are my first efforts. Funny how it makes you feel a little vulnerable to put these out in public. I welcome comments, but be gentle folks - this is my first time.
The circumstance of this first one is fairly self-evident. And the cold truth is upon us now, a mere 4 days later.
Deceptively warm, the December morning air
whispers “Spring” across my skin.
Happily complicit, I savor its touch,
denying that cold truth will prevail.
A day or so later, the beginning of my day was not so gentle.
All is pain and darkness.
I struggle to semi-consciousness,
mired down in a pre-dawn migraine.
A plain white pill beckons
from the impossibly distant
I also read in Nature (Nature 491, 640 (29 November 2012)) that the B meson subatomic particle is the first one observed in processes that do not "run in the same way forwards in time as they do backwards." This means that time's arrow can only move toward the future. Of course, us non-physicists have rarely doubted that.
Recent discovery shows
time’s arrow does fly in only 1 direction,
unquestionably traveling my way.
