Flying (an acrostic poem)

Floating through the air

Laughing with unadulterated joy

Yielding finally to gravity, you fell

Into my waiting arms

Now you soar without me needing to catch you

God, I miss that job

Stardust (an acrostic poem)

Simple reactions born of hydrogen and gravity

Taking that simplest of building blocks

And combining into something more and more

Radiating energy with every step

Developing into heavier and heavier thing

Until the sun collapses under the weight of the products

Supernova scatters the remains across space and time

Till you and I were created

Gravity (an acrostic poem)

Giving the topic the weight it deserved

Rob thought about how heavy this discussion was going to be

Acerbity left his mouth fowled

Veiled threats forced themselves into his thoughts

It put pressure on what he was about to do

To think his dignity was about be sucked into a black hole

Yet he still made the airplane noises to get John to eat is peas

A Metaphysical Situation

It was when Herm noticed the gravity of the situation that he fell from grace.  No force on earth could have restored him to equilibrium.  What little static friction that had kept him grounded vanished in the kinetic condition, leaving him slipping along the path of good intentions.  He would have to spring back at a later date, but for now he had to bob with the wave.  He felt his moral bank redshift and wondered why since everything is relative.  In the end he just stood there between emotional states, not knowing if he was happy, sad, or some superposition of the two.
