Fizzy Feelings and Fuzzy Physics: Particles

By Noel Ihebuzor and Susan Daniels

Lately, conversations,
learned or elementary
about quantum entanglements
resonate & bring to mind

rich in kinks and curves
to the eyes straight
mirrors of us imperfect in perfection
reluctantly splitting in medium dense
elegance bending in fine angles

And  tonight I lose sleep
to deep speculation

wondering at which point
and  how

particles of pure energy
roaming space free, opening places
penetrating spaces and crevices

the flowing and roaming  particles of 
our matter collided

breaking barriers
upper and lower limit
vibrating stream of energy

yes, streams that crashed
and colluded
to synthesize
this synchronized turn
& counter-turn
between us

how across distances
the color of angel robes
the bow of the sky

this awareness continues
bundles of colors at different energy levels
streaming to lighten, to loosen
a delight

past an elemental level

indefinite until measured

***Quantum entanglements, or the theory of, was the inspiration for this duet between my bolded friend and I (italicized).  I believe it describes nicely a friendship and affinity that stretches across the globe 🙂

As always, hope you enjoy our fuzzy, fizzy exploration between particles and people — I know I had fun writing it with Noel, hope you enjoy reading it.  Shoot, “fun” is such a weak word–I had a fabulous time playing on the page with my friend the word wizard.

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?

  1. flows with particles rich in feeling, and reaching and filling our minds with rich colors and sounds! Thansks, Susan – what joy to sing with one as gifted as you!

    Bravo to both of you. Brilliant and I love the way this one merged, maybe more so than the others. So very well done.

    • Thank you, Rhonda–this was another one of those off the cuff pure inspirations that became a duet–it sprang up unplanned, just like the Time piece 🙂

      I think we sing best together when it is unplanned and spontaneous–NOT that I don’t love the whole series–I do, very much adore it, and there is one more, final one coming along nicely 🙂
