Lance at the 100 Word Song Challenge asks you to write 100 words (no more, no less) in whatever genre, or fashion you are inspired to write in, using the song of the week to get you there.
This week's 100 Word Song challenge inspiration is from Indigo Girls "Galileo"
Patron of the Stars
He studied motion and mathematics
had a different way of looking at the world
…it goes around us.
Taught until there was a lesson,
another lesson that he taught
one way pulled him into motion
another led him to the stars
…it shines within us
Stars aligned with his vision
an Aquarianistic view
He held the future in a moment
held on to his truth.
They yelled heretic.
Watching out the window
from another world
where the earth revolved around the sun
Hydrostatic balance and
the universal law of acceleration
Planetary physicist, philosopher,
ahead of your time.
