The Force of Gravity

The Force of Gravity

The Force of Gravity

We didnโ€™t realise the gravity of the situation

the impact of releasing a single word,
a flutter
faintly at first but slowly
the breeze from the butterfly effect
turned into a cyclonic wind


gravity holds
planets in orbit of the sun
you were the sun
as we were the planets


there was a supernova
a stella explosion

what was before
and what remains,
a mirage
that is life
without gravity.

  1. This is beautiful and delicate. I feel I should whisper a response to your words.

    A poem that is light as a feather, floating … and therefore perfectly realised.

    Take care xx

  2. Oh, gosh. Paul’s words out of his vocabulary. I had been thinking of that but had forgotten which words. What a tribute to him that you remember “gravity” was one of the banished-out-of-love words!

    Lovely, delicately balanced tribute both to Paul and to
    Gravity. With both grace and gravitas which all depictions of gravity should have.

  3. This is of course Paul’s legacy, that he should inspire another talented writer to create such beautiful imagery and capture feeling in verse. Splendid Gabrielle.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. It seems you have had your Blog site far longer than my own. Your words are beautiful and bring to the fore how much impact certain people have upon our lives. Your words show a depth only to be imagined.
