Foucault's Pendulum (2015 APR PAD - Day 17)

Foucault's pendulum

“Nothing
in the universe
is at rest.”
The heart vacillates.
Placid with all it has,
aching for what it lacks,
it bleeds in black and white –
a pendulum passing
between dark and light,
but nowise winding down;
while gray
matter(s) to the mind,
which spins, (seeing
what was, is, may yet be),
circles a whirlwind vortex,
imagining a center eye,
a placid balance
between all three.
