29 Nov 2012 The Helix – Almond Blossoms
From my haiku anthology – ‘Almond Blossoms’
silver sun droops
on golden wheat fields

In the second part of ‘Almond Blossoms’, my haiku anthology, I expressed my thoughts about the fact that the helix could be the secret pattern underlying the whole universe – from the microcosm of DNA strings to the macrocosm of our galaxy, the Milky Way, the spiral reigns supreme.
Incidentally Mr Joseph Saliba seems to think on the same line. His poetry collection is entitled : ‘Spirali’.
Another issue discussed in the essay to my haiku anthology in the book ‘Almond Blossoms’ :
Einstein’s general relativity is based on the premise that nothing moves faster than the speed of light. What will happen to the theory if one day some particle is found to travel faster than the speed of light? Experiments in CERN have been close to proving that there could be other forces or particles that travel at speeds faster than the speed of light.
