Foucault’s Pendulum

Foucault’s Pendulum by Michael Arthur make deft use of rhythm and rich imagery to bestow a message of hope through constant change.

To take then
you do it so easily
so take again
it is yours to have
an opening
it gleams in your mind
like fresh cut grass
from the meadow
of your future

There in the park
strong arms
wielding the scythe
you reave the sheaves
cutting keen the harvest
of your worry free mind

your mind is open to brilliant futures
caught in perpetual motion
like some giant pendulum
feeling the earth’s body
spinning in rapture
