The poet, the scientist
Tried to reconcile.

But the beauty they attested to seemed so different.

Where lights danced fleetingly on the heavens for one,
The other explained that charged particles disturb the earth's magnetosphere.

One scribes fleeting, perishable thoughts as they leap into existence,
the other states that energy is always conserved throughout the universe.

But for both, it seemed,
The simple, inalienable 'truth',
Lies scattered in a series of moments,
Fragmented through different lenses.

And to seek it,
Or reconstruct it whole,

Is worth one mortal's stretch,
Or a history of them.
