Rhyming poetry inspired by scienceCollections of short poems in rhyme;
Inspired all by science;
Outward to the edge of time;
Or tied to earthly cadence.

There is no angst to hide.

Richard Feynman - inspiration to poets everywhereI’m inspired by a challenge from Richard Feynman, one of the most important physicists of the 20th Century – certainly the most interesting.  He said:

Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?

It does not do harm to the mystery to know a little about it. For far more marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined it.

Why do the poets of the present not speak of it? What are poets who can speak of Jupiter if he were a man, but if he is an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?”

You’ll notice I use rhyme in my poetry, usually in a simple pattern like A B C B.  Rhyme and the short phrases I favor match a poem to the rhythm of my steps, which is inevitable since I frequently compose while walking.  I also enjoy the discipline that rhyme provides.  It pleases my analytical mind when the perfect word presents itself, fitting both the poem’s subject and its form.  Writing poetry makes me happy, and I hope you’ll share a bit of the delight as you read.
