Stephen Hawking – In Memoriam

 

 

Energy.

 

The body can wilt

While the mind thrives

 

Irony.

 

Movement consigned

To a universal quilt.

 

Six words a minute

The pace of his ideas

Carefully extracting theories

Likes poems,

Spontaneous residuals of concentrated

Equations, where art, science,

Literature combine: an idea accelerator.

 

Energy and irony

 

The night before Albert Einstein’s

Birthday, did Hawking know

His own black hole was opening

For a journey unknown?

 

Was he still making love

With his expansive mind

Unconfined by physical demise

Until the breathing stopped

Gravity pulling him away.

 

Stephen Hawking passes:

But one can only imagine

The conversations he’s

Having with Albert and Galileo.
