Down and Up

Isaac Newton and the DogWalk


Said gravity to water droplet –
“ I will force you down”
Said droplet to earth –
“You may shudder with the fall”
Said earth to water
“I will spread you in my womb”
Said water to the roots
“I will move up inside you”
Said Time to Winter
”You are going down”
Said Time to Spring
“Time to come up”
Said tree to itself
“Time to grow up and bud”
Said bud to husk
“Release me so I can grow up”
Said gravity to husk
“You are going to fall down”
Said spider to the tree
“Hold my web, so I do not fall”
