Poetry Pleases: Cambridge

Meryl Nickels wonders whether this millennium will bring fragmentation, or the fruition of the theories espoused in that great learning centre, Cambridge.

Ornate gates give access
to ancient colleges,
home to generations
pf revered scholars.
Their erudition
has changed the world
in many ways
not by violent action,
but by shedding light
on new concepts,
seeking to penetrate the fog
that obscures the future.
Plotting our place
in an expanding universe,
encompassing galaxies
and planets,
tantalizingly close,
yet light years away.

Will the new millennium
bring fragmentation
or fruition
to the theories espoused
over centuries?
