He saw an apple falling on the ground
Then he asked himself why downwards
Why not upwards all the way to the sky
From there he studied the mystery of mechanical laws

He saw a beam of light falling on a prsim
Then he saw a band of colors cast on the wall
From there he explained the mystry of rainbow

He was the great British scientist
He was Sir Issac Newton
He was born the same year Galilleo died
How open are your eyes to the unexpected?
How often does your mind think of "why"
How often does it dream to ask "why not"

Fantastic Abdi-Noor!!
Great poem, tribute and contemplation!
"The unexamined life is one not worth having" I've heard somewhere.
Your life is your art! Shine on Artist!
Love & friendship Suzie :-D

It makes you wonder doesn't it - almost as if there is a master plan that all men and women are part of.

Why would Newton even have those thoughts?

I believe great men and women are chosen before they are born, and given what they need to pursue what needs to be accomplished.

I liked this!

A wonderful poem of factual summation, inspiration and inquiry, Abdi-Noor! I love your following lines:

How open are your eyes to the unexpected?
How often does your mind think of "why"
How often does it dream to ask "why not"

Reviewed by Mr. Ed 6/21/2006
How open are your eyes to the unexpected?
How often do you ask yourself why?

Quite often, Abdi-Noor, but I guess I'm not smart enough to find all the answers I want. Sure wish I was.
