This poem was inspired by Richard Feynman’s book Six Easy Pieces, Lecture 5: Theory of Gravitation
“Some major mysteries in physics have frustrated great minds for decades, including the nature of … gravity, for which no particle has been found.” http://bit.ly/11t0HiC

Everything is always falling, falling everywhere.
It all seems so familiar we don’t see the mystery there.
What holds the sun together, what keeps the planets bound,
What pulls the tides through oceans, keeps my feet upon the ground.
It is the shape of space-time; through four dimensions fall.
So now we see the mystery, can it be a force at all?
