Starry Night #1

I was trained for physics Olympiad. ย I had a great teacher and an amazing cohort. ย Those are distant now, and yet my high-school physics adventures have influenced my character profoundly still: devotion, imagination, patience and confidence prevail in my academic life.

Here’s a poem from October, 2013, not long after my first high school physics class.


Amid the mysteries, you came.
A wave function, alive:
Changing
Evolving;
Growing
Dancing.

Then, there came
Long darkness.
Silence drained our starlight.

Weighting my soul,
your shadow casts upon my device,

In the infinite doubt of mine,
You are nowhere…

Everywhere.

I dug this up to answer the internet question: what if physicists write poems?

Well, I will primarily focus on the physicist part of things now.
