Friday March 11, 2011 A Small Stone, Big Tent Poetry

A Small Stone

Tiny light blinking
Across field of stars
Air travel has become
Ordinary

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Big Tent Poetry Prompt: Science

Art and Science
Together arm in arm
There are always questions
To be answered
Nothing is definite

What if
Is the question
You must be willing to see
Mix yellow and red
Orange
Too bright
Add a small amount of blue
Too dark
Add a small of white

Count the stars
The number is
Sure to come in handy
Everything is relative
Work a life time
Discoveries made
Permission given
Continue

What if
Like the big circle of life
Walk the perimeter
No beginning
No ending
Just new questions
To be answered

  1. Annell,
    I, too, am always awed by the synchrony between art and science.

  6. Always more questions than answers. Another well-informed poem for our delight.

  7. Art and Science? My friend, a poet with a PHD in Chemistry, used to tell me that all the time. I often wondered about him. Now have to wonder about me, instead. Really like your tiny stone and have often had the same thought cross my mind. I like the poem, it makes sense, now if I can only wrap that sense around my own head.

  8. Some air travel is ordinary..magic balloons however always fly past stars..looking at pictures of you at work I would say you mix science and art..do you not have to if you are a visual artist? I like that there are always more questions..even if sometimes there aren't any new answers...Jae

  9. One of my favorite ideas is that the more we know the more questions we have. Nicely done!

  10. I enjoyed your first poem so very much. I have butterflies on my mind and found myself wondering if we would every know ordinary flight as a butterfly does.
