Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Dark skyward Rorschach
Synchronized undulation
Phase transition
Pulsing into shadow waves
Mesmerizing murmuration

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. Very complex – not sure I can really get to grips with this. Simple words, complex thoughts also nice format.

  2. This is a wonderful poem and video. I have seen a murmuration before, but did not know the name for it. Thank you for that bit of knowledge. I remember thinking at the time that it appeared as though someone threw a large handful of black pepper into the sky, to be borne on the wind from horizon to horizon. Ω

  3. Thank you. Parts of it I like, parts I reworked doggedly and still was not completely happy.


  4. Cool! You are very lucky as they are rare. Can you imagine the amount of poo you would get on your head standing under one. It would be worth it though. And thank you for the kind words.


  5. I try to bring poetry to science but it isn’t always easy.


  6. I had not considered that until now. It would give a whole new meaning to the term “shit storm”, that’s for sure!. Ω
