In esoteric thought there are many sayings associated with this idea, that is ‘ throw a stone into the Sea on one side,it can cause a tidal wave on the other’. I suppose it hints at Quantum Entanglement and how everything is intricately connected.
FOR WANT OF A MOMENT
Expectant pause, the Clock holds it’s breath,
all is frozen, a fractional window, so slight,
unobserved, fate spins it’s cogs and wheels,
the World suspended between life and death.
Endless permutations and choices of road,
was it a smile or a chance suddenly taken.
Perhaps a decision or a single thought.
The moment is passed, seeds have been sowed.
Everything has changed,
We know not how.
