‘Given for one instant an intelligence which could comprehend all the forces by which nature is animated and the respective situation of the beings who compose it- an intelligence sufficiently vast to submit these data to analysis- it would embrace in the same formula the movements of the greatest bodies of the universe and those of the lightest atom; for it, nothing would be uncertain and the future, as the past, would be present to its eyes.’ – Pierre Simon Laplace, A Philosophical Essay on Probabilities

Key of Shells

Did I hear the cry from a distance?

 

It’s screeching harmonies

so discordant to the ear

 

These guardians –

pitching watchful sound

Complementary hue

 

Is anyone listening?

Or just looking

 

The key of shells
