Discovery - Poem 13


(This poem is the 13th of my April poems, all inspired by the visual prompts on Bud the Teacher's blog. Today's image was a black and white photo of a man and woman in a chemistry lab.) 

Discovery

It begins with a wondering.
An itchy, scratchy feeling in the
Back of a brain

“Why? How? What if?”

Sometimes there are
Sudden
Bursts
of inspiration

Mythical apples
Overflowing tubs

“Eureka!”

Sometimes the progress
is slow and painful and comes in fits and starts,
along with countless failures that could make
the bravest soul
descend
into despair.

Yet we soldier on into the
Unknown.

Women and men,
Young and old,
Boldly creating the future.
Uncovering the past

Answering each
“Why? How? What if?”
One little speck at a time.
