Cold Morning Physics


Cold Morning Physics


Frozen windshield greets the day.

Scraper posed.

Long arm of the law …

that is the work-arm of the law of physics!

Leverage, torque,

the length determines the force!


Formulas cavorting in my head,

while trying to calculate

the most efficient angle

to apply pressure.


High pitched screech

of plastic on glass,

as the blade attacks its foe.

Progress at hand,

visibility clears.


The science of the universe

follows us throughout our lives.

Some may refute it,

or be oblivious to it,

but the laws are always applied.

Matter, energy, motion …

all in observance.

The task endures.
