The Laws of Physics

The Laws of Physics

A thimble holds my knowledge of
Physics baffles me, ties me up in knots
Not knowing an atom from Adam’s house cat

But I know the basics
Of power and might
Of David and Goliath
Of small things with enormous will
Endless possibilities

Strength, reconstituted
Boiled down to the root of the matter
Exponential greatness
Found in the most unlikely places

Go found me
I can turn it on its head
Flip it around, upside down
Add and subtract from the core of what it is

I don’t need a PHD to know
The power


Watch it go. Add a d, and see
Double the o then see
Goodness and mercy
Get really crazy and beautiful things appear
Gorgeous, it all started with a g and an o.

Physics spins me in circles
But I know get up and go
Simply step and step again and there you

Go with me
To a playful place
One Dr. Seuss and others know
The places we’ll go, oh the places we’ll go
You and me and the letters”G-O”.



Feel encouraged today. Place your name behind the word. One comment on the blog yesterday stirred my soul and I saw anew the power of encouragement in “GO”. Go in love, Go to serve, Go empowered by God’s mercy and grace. Go outside. Go tell it, go sing it, go make it, be it. Simply “GO”

  1. I love this poem. I’m reminded of the Great Commission in Matthew 28, “GO ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

    Happy New Year! – visiting from Still Saturday

  2. I like it. It is action. It is challenging. It is real, unless we ‘go’ we do not move in any direction whether that be in a spiritual sense or a physical one.

    1. Sharon, yes. Yes. May we grow and go places Spiritually in community this year. Thank you for walking through this blogging journey with me. Thank you, truly. Seeking His will in the going, Elizabeth
