THE SHEER POWER OF LIGHT AND THOUGHT

THE SHEER POWER OF LIGHT AND THOUGHT

Radiometer_grande 

Regard the radiometer – a toy

as well as scientific instrument,

a vacuum bulb with racing flags inside,

an inverse top that spins with endless joy

and makes the photon’s power evident

with one absorbing, one reflecting side.

Requiring no battery or plug,

the particle-waves providing power

inspire awe and imagination,

though most, by far, would dismiss with a shrug

explanations that might take an hour

which delve into “thermal transpiration.”

Suffice to say, not beating that dead horse,

things lacking mass can still exhibit force.
