Summary: This is at an early stage and a complete experiment. I was inspired by Mike's grouse love poem to try to write one of my own but because the summer prompt is Interference used physics. I think I found it easier to express the physics than the love. Oh, dear. Any suggestions? It's okay to say bin it.




Waves
 
We oscillate
 
Remain aligned
 
Crash under breakers
 
Burst into light
 
Electro-magnetic power
draws together strings unbound
 
So the medium of disturbance
can produce a purer sound
 
Interference cancelling out the
sum of space and time
 
Amplitude increasing
as our equal states combine
