ZERO SUM
Poems of Equilibrium
 

Aside from the mysterious dark matter and energy, most things common to our material world can be distilled down to electrons, gluons, and quarks, conveniently welded together by electromagnetic and nuclear forces to make those strange, inexplicable little machines we call 'atoms.' So few ingredients, so much variety!

And then there's us – conscious, sentient beings, doing what we do to survive and, meanwhile, somehow, finding time to think, dream, create, party, worship, and greet each other with "Namaste! The light in me honors the light in you."

At age 70, there is rarely a moment, now, when I don't see, hear, taste, smell, and feel everything in my sphere of existence without breathtaking awe and wonder. That's why I write poems. —M.G.
