Fizzy Feelings and Fuzzy Physics: Motion II

By Susan L. Daniels and Noel A. Ihebuzor

All life is motion compelled to move;
you and I, we must move too

even in apparent stillness
our atoms vibrate

past vision and all senses, rearranging with
the simple harmonic motion of elements,
the inner rotation of the subatomic
like mirrored, miniature solar systems
the shift of season into season,
the pulls tides answer, and strokes of waves

all singing life
every motion has brought us
closer to this motion today
where we move in unison

your voice in mine and
mine in yours

your tongue vibrates, feels
and feeds my throat motion;
fluttering, trembling, all kinetic and stirring
and we move, the rhythm of us a motion

born of force and attraction

by polarities that pull
create this swirl, tremulous gyrations, vibrating, oscillating
where merging in vertical and horizontal flows
we reach forward and beyond
with hastening speed

and now, with vectors charting
direction, force and magnitude
this joined velocity singing and ringing
still accelerating, celebrating
the influx and efflux of creativity,
its season of release 

***Whew.  Hope you enjoyed that as much as we did.  I’m italicized and Noel is bolded.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Ahem…no words. (Course, tongue is hanging out and drooling that could be why.)
    Wow…all I can manage. Oh and maybe a Yum. I could go on with these three letter words but I’ll spare you. BRAVO you two.

    like like and like… heat is palpable here

    Nice one… what so fascinates me is how the further science explores, the more it seems matter is not at all as we believe it to be, but energy based, intangible on a sub-atomic level.

    Nicely written Susan

    You two make a great poetic duets
