Galileo postulated in a thought;
two objects one light one heavy
connected to each other by a string
dropped from the Leaning Tower
If heavier objects fall faster
the string would soon be taut
and the combined objects
should fall even faster.
But they didn’t.
Objects fall at the same rate
like Newton’s apple from the tree;
they won’t fall any faster, even when connected.
But what of you and me?
Perhaps we didn’t fall at all
but lay still
as the world moved ‘round us
at light speed
I know when you fell for me, hard and to the core
time and motion stopped; thrilled in delightful stillness
as the rest of Heaven sped by;
