I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Experiment Design" is my response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 37.
This word had me stumped, but then my muse finally began to conjure up a few words.
I hope you enjoy the following poems. One shows us the power of the placebo effect and the other is like finding a bit of magic.
"The Power Of The Placebo Effect ~ Emma Bryce"
Mind Over Matter
Feeling a bit like a Guinea pig
he takes part in a clinical study
hoping to find a cure.
when his symptoms begin to dissipate,
but little does he know
he took a placebo.
Each day his body seems stronger,
enthusiasm wakes him early
giving him a new step in his stride,
leaving the doctors a bit perplexed.
Seeing his mind manifest a new truth
proving the theory
we are what we believe.
Acrostic Poem ~ Experiment
Excitement lingers in the air like
Xmas morning opening
Energy takes control,
Renewing our faith with
Making them a reality,
Eagerly awaiting the outcome,
Nurturing human nature
To believe in magic.
No amount of experimentation
can ever prove me right;
a single experiment can prove me wrong.
— Albert Einstein
