Are you good at making paper airplanes?

Paper Airplane

With precision, with care, with deft hand

the paper is folded, creased and folded more.

Soon a shape takes shape, takes form, awaits

awaits to be launched upon the wind.

With precision, with care with deft hand

words are caressed, penned and refined more.

Soon they take shape, take form, await

await to be launched upon the wind.

With eager hand the plane takes air

adorned with words, symbols to interpret.

Both ride the wind, both live for the wind.

But who will understand and appreciate?

The precision, the care, the deft hand

that launched the paper filled with words.

    The analogy works so well it is gratefully read this a.m.!

    Planes/words/poetry...all given to the winds of flight, the minds of readers...this is great!

    Achievement deluxe...uh, submit for publication? Yes, yes, yes!

    Good Morning!

    I like this, especially as the form of the poem fits so beautifully with the action of creating a paper plane (which often involves creasing, and re-creasing, folding and re-folding) or crafting a formal poem (which involves writing, and re-writing)

    With ease the plane takes to the air, rather than With eager hand the plane takes you think?

    I've been folding and creasing since last week, but sadly have failed to launch. My hand's not so deft. Nice write about writing. Sort of a Zen meditation, eh?

    Flying clever words on pen again, Sir Neonman

    I enjoyed this pen.

    From newspaper my mother was a whiz of folding newspapers, into

    party hats and planes that zoomed, but never penned, yet wished to write her book, way back then.

    I am better at making paper airplanes than I am at writing poems.

    The plane sails in the air and lands effortlessly,

    while the poems seem to crash and burn!

    Great write.

    An example of good - better - best. Anything of value - takes practice. Still - do not know why - they are being called - paper airplanes - when they all look like - space shuttles ♥

    Origami Neonman San(d), hai! Excellent juxtaposition.(I like that j word so much...why is that?)

    Artistic yet simple. I do enjoy those words. My compliments.

    His words unfold line by line

    gift unwrapping for all to see

    Revealing vision from nothing

    Symbolic, real and precious

    That's my view and I'm sticking to it!

    Yes, care and precision, both.

    When launched we hope to succeed.

    Enjoyable read.

    E = (1/2)mv^2 You've been given E and m. Just plug them in. Or solve for v first: 2E = mv^2 2E/m = v^2 v = sqrt(2E/m). Now plug in E and m. By the way, quantities in physics have units, so whether or not 3 is the right number, "3" all by itself can't be the answer since a velocity would have units of m/sec.

    I fly like paper, get high like planes
