Uncertainty—by Diana Harkness



The Principal of Indeterminacy

The Principal of Uncertainty

We cannot know the outcome;

Hope or chaos in the cosmos.


If a butterfly dies

It shakes the world.

I smashed a bee under my foot

Did the world move?

Heisenberg knew.

When he located the particle

It changed speed.

When he measured its speed

It changed position.


We brush against each other.

Our words touch and flit.

You change my position;

And I change yours.

You change my direction.

You change my speed.

And every word from every source

And every note

Of music

And birdsong

And frog song

And wind and wave song

Touch upon touch,

Word upon word

Imperceptible changes

Until we are truly

Dancing in rhythm,

To the song of the Ages.
