Chihully Glass #2

Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”

― Albert Einstein


That got me to write this poem....


This is the mystery 
of energy 
enough to ignite
colored shards of glass  
a fire fountain 
of blues and reds   
spill into a fused stillness. 

The same mystery 
waits   
in the candle wick,
the match
the dry kindling.
