The Seeker (Attempt at Micropoetics)

When you find the restless boson

touch it gently in the depth

seek the wonder ever further

beyond the forest prose of cables.

  1. boson is a cool word…i looked it up as well…thinking first of a ships boson…small for small you know….there is beauty in the every day..even the forests of cables…

    1. I am fascinated by the invisible, almost imperceptible particles our world is made up of. And the people who spend a lifetime searching for them…

  2. Maria Sofia – What an effective way to talk about seeing details and finding beauty in unexpected places. Impressive!

  3. I have to admit I had to look up boson as well found this one to be interesting..but, I think I’ll take my forest in the form of leafy trees..

    1. Sorry, I didn’t realise ‘boson’ is not part of everyday vocabulary, as my physicist husband talks about it constantly… There is a forbidding beauty of the giant detectors – a pinnacle of human achievement.

    1. Mind you, never called the God particle by the physicists themselves… But yes, there is always something beyond, that’s what I like to think!

  4. how cool…never heard the word boson before…so you went to the small parts as well for your micro poetry… well worth seeking further… finding beauty in the small everyday things..

    1. Yes, they’re about 99.9% certain that they’ve narrowed down the area where the Higgs Boson might be, so we’re really close to nailing it. But I hope that doesn’t mean it will be stuck to paper like a butterfly in a collection.

  5. there is something…I don’t know…whimsical about this piece which seems in such contrast to the scienciness (sorry for the made up word) of ‘boson’. yet it works very well.

  6. I was with Brian and thought of a ships boson, such an unusual and different take on the prompt. Very clever, may I add.
