Poetry Friday: Orchards by Holly Thompson
Current Mood: thankful
Current Song: When It All Comes Down by Bonnie McKee
Newton's third law
of reciprocal action
for every action there is an equal
that all forces are interactions
all forces come in pairs
Physics and You
spells it out
if body A exerts a force
on body B
then body B will exert a force
of the same magnitude
on body A
push and pull
is what happened
and you, Ruth -
and body B
- from the verse novel Orchards by Holly Thompson
