Barista Favorite: The Song of Science- Emily C.

The Baristas have chosen their favorite piece of writing from the March 15th Pay It Forward Thursday at the Go Dog Go Cafe.  We are honored to share the Barista Favorite with the GDG community, the poem The Song of Science by Emily C. at Poet Girl Em.  We highly encourage you to go read more of Emily’s writing.

i can see you waving
from Mars

your empty wheelchair floating
to endless abyss beyond

free you breathe and unbound you dance
and here we are, left to grasp

the voice of a genius brain
once silenced, now echoing

into the cold cosmos:
singing the song of science
to any and all

you scrawl 
a theorem into red dust sand
for the next explorer
soon arriving
on the waves of your thoughts

we will carry on
searching,
celebrating the next big bang
for you,
and knowing
you have been

released from prison
freedom attained
leaving earth
your star
remains

~ Emily C.~

RIP Stephen Hawking
