The apple of logic falls, obeying Newton,
Clinging on to the earth.
A massive, irreversible bond
Is growing between them.
But how willing is the apple?

I can pick it up and throw it
Back into the branches.
That is the power beyond
The wise man’s calculations.
And you can add a fallen apple too.

  1. Ah ha! The bad apple poem:-)

  2. But it won’t stay up after you’ve thrown it 😊 L&H ❤️ Xxx

  3. You can fight facts but you can’t ignore them, as Christine rightly says, the apple will fall down again

    • You can fight wrong facts and win 🙂 Apples not necessarily fall down, I proved they can fall up.

  4. Humans have always wished to defy gravity, and they have sometimes succeeded (the airplane). But, like Christine says, it’s only temporary. In the long run, nature wins. The apple never naturally falls up; it is tossed up, by a wishful human being.

  5. Only a poet can defy Newtonian physics.

    Cleverly done! Wonderful writing!!!

  7. You know how I feel about brevity. “If I had the time I would have written you a shorter letter.” Love it. Could be, Mark Pascal that wrote it. Don’t know for sure. BTW… I do like the poem, and finally getting to see you. Just the eyes…
