Arcum de Hominae

December 10, 2013

There may be
A lesson for us
In the perfect
Form of the
Roman arch.
Ancient minds
Saw the flaws
Within the high
Rigid walls of
Straight frames
And boxed corners;
Instead they knew
To be strong,
One must bend.
Using the quiet
Force of gravity,
They pulled in
Stone against stone
And created the
Structures that
Still stand today.

What beauty lies
Dormant in a half-
Circle of stone?
