Inferred Perceptions

When Copernicus suggested the earth
         revolved around the sun
                  he disturbed the soil

at the base of the tree of understanding,
         nudged the roots interwoven
                  with the doctrines of the church.

Kepler enlarged this heliocentric garden
         while Galileo honed his tools,
                  sharpened the ax

that ground against the darkness
         church fathers thought
                  to be light.
