Writing is art. Each month, I write about the theoretical physics I do for Quantum Frontiers, the blog of Caltech’s Institute for Quantum Information and Matter. During National Poetry Month (April) 2015, I compared poetry with the Dirac Equation for elementary particles. Readers responded with art of their own---with poems they enjoy or composed. The ensuing conversation evoked the back-and-forth between painter and museum-goer, or that between the natural world and the scientists who measure it.
