Heisenberg Sunrise




the invitation
a surprise like Texas snow
sweetened my Earl Grey

gently stirring Heisenberg's uncertainty principle around
in my morning cup of tea
dissolving it like granulated sugar

sipping slowly the diluted theory that
the value of certain positions
cannot be measured

Good morning Plus Ultra! Thank you for visiting. I have read your poetry and admired your artwork before (I believe you are a physician as well?), and it is at times sublime.

I am truly honored and flattered that you would link to me. And I will do in kind.

Take care.

What a fascinating journey your work takes us on.

I love the nonchalance with which you weave an ordinary day in and out the science of life that has bewitched many a brilliant mind.

Isn't that the way it is though? Theories do not dissipate simply because the majority know nothing of them.

It seems you have found the portal of that parallel universe and can live comfortably between the two with no string theories attached.
:)

Beautiful work!

Queen Neetee: Hello Miss 1969!!! I'm so glad you've found me. And thank you for your gracious words of praised. You've captured so perfectly what I'm trying to achieve her. Shining a soft light on beautiful science that underlies all our acts and connects us all.

I am delighted that you would link to me.

A cup full of quantum theory. You certainly know how to fire-up the neurons in a few lines of poetry!! Your blog is a great find, I will add you to my links, so I'll remember to visit on a regular basis.

Your weave of adroit poetry and scientific aphorisms is amazing. Science, in general, is out of my zone of knowledge, but I can certainly appreciate the way you blend the two.

Oh, and I stopped by your wet poetry site. I didn't have time to comment, but I thought it was fantastic. I'll definitely be back!

Kai: Thank you sweetie. And keep writing (that's what they keep telling me too).

Ô¿Ô: So glad you stopped by--both sites! And thank you. "Adroit" eh? I'm not a professional scientist (daughter of hard math and science peeps though), but ever curious and learning. Very much a lay girl. And still trying to grasp what I should have in AP Physics and Calculus. And so glad you liked the stuff on Wet. You are quickly becoming one of my fav male poets of "intimate" verse on the web. When are you going to record?!?!

What an affront to the reasoning of man that his reasoning has led to the find the uncertainty of the reasoned mind. The last time I stirred that principle in my tea (sleepytime it was) it took about three days to rid my guts of that uncertainty.
Let me just say that once again I am astounded by your writing. How are you not famous? Some rich tart boinks on a home video and the whole world knows her and yet here is a supremely gifted talent wallowing in obscurity. It baffles the mind.

A hearty hello Ozy!!! So so glad to hear from you! You were missed (hope it was just for something happy like a sumptuous holiday).

Yes, Heisenberg leaves me in a mire. And autodidact that I am in the sciences, I have to reduce everything to its smallest components to try and comprehend. And I still really don't. But I try. And apply my warped interpretations. But there is such beauty in these complexities eh?

And I am floored by your rich praise. Really. You're making me cry this morning. Just know that it really swells my heart that you believe in me. Kind stranger that you are. I'm even printing your comment so I can refer to it on grey days.

Now all I need is a great publicist like PH. Who can do so much with so little. Ah, that is the key!

Dipping into your poem, like the spoon dipping into the cup to stir, gently alters my experience of the universe.
