"Gravity Waves" by Tricia Knoll, Frequent Contributor

Gravity Waves
Tricia Knoll

warping space time we thought
was all science fiction
when Einstein said a hundred times
or was it a hundred years ago
the black holes dance together,
losing mass as energy
warps as beam.

So infinitesimally small
and so infinitesimally big
the words we struggle
to lay out on a warp
and declination
we can understand.

Quakes in the spacetime,
the scientist said I made one
lurching out of bed
for the shower
five minutes after
the alarm clock rang.
I thought so
Swelling time
to just make enough.

Poet’s Notes:  I read a daily science news blog. The discovery of gravity waves that Einstein predicted so long ago, well, that amazed me. I think I feel them moving through me.
