Circular Things - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Noticed how many circular things there are…
The world, the sun, the moon…a bouncing ball
Things twirl in circles around the rim in a spin
Water swirling down the drain… a tornado funnel

Centrifugal force and gravity oppose one another
Creating forms in the rounded motion of space
Amazing hands are molding, what’s the reason?
There are no noticeable fingerprints to be traced

An embryo begins with a sphere and chromosomes
With the intellect of Einstein, tissues specialize
Contributing to living things that inhabit the earth
Humans search for an explanation with round eyes

Mass is a contributing factor in the growth plan
Otherwise spinning and pulling would have no effect
Round red and white corpuscles flow in the circulatory
Carrying inquisitiveness, looking for dots to connect
