The velocity of light is independent of the motion of its source

by Christos Polydorou

If a thing is a thing
created,
it is alive,
falling from the tree,
beaming from the sun.

Whatever it is,
light,
apple,
it will eventually begin to
move

at a velocity
that is dependent and
independent
of the motion
of its source.

Albert Einstein is playing
the violin
to a room of wealthy patrons in
a Viennese drawing room,
but what is illuminating the velocity

of his Mozart,
and raises it,
to the chords
of angels,
is a relatively older girl

who to Einstein
is overwhelmingly luminous,
so he cannot see
the source for the light,
but can now see the invisible

in the place
of the visible.
“Joy
in looking
and comprehending

is nature’s
most beautiful
gift.”
Albert Einstein Playing Violin
