Lay for the Day14th
Albert Einstein was born on this day in 1879 in Ulm, Germany.
a sphere of mist
of milling weather
things have exhaled
us, huddled together,
we conceive of space, discounting a grist
as emptiness unassailed.
from their seething springs,
and at a single pace,
unseen rays race
and cross without a trace,
unstrayed and unslowing unless they fly
the wavelengths interlock as things
in at the tomb of our eyes
becoming there the light we recognise.
