ELEMENTAL DESIGNS

ELEMENTAL DESIGN Hydrogen to Helium A fusion formed by gravity A carbon-based delirium Molecularly infinite energy An ancient discipline known as alchemy We’re consciousness - the explosion - amorous We dream of gold from lead and mercury Fueled reaction in copper with phosphorus A universal age of prosperity Bismuth bath. Deficient of iron and zinc Astronautic laugh – last shine of hope Nuclear decay –enlightened way – elemental - instinct Scientific – logical clay – gaseous isotope. The fluoride, we drink? Humanity on the pivotal brink The edge, a precipice. Lanthanides and actinides Metals and mysteries. Shrink down to atomic scale Our intellect – an accelerated history Reality? A holographic projection Radioactive expansion A gravitational trajectory Inertia Precious pavonine pearl Our planet, our world. A place all our elements may inhabit Terrestrially unique. Diverse and intelligent The push of inertia The pull of gravity The spin of an atom The spin of our galaxy. The end. (written for the periodic table of elements poetry contest) 12-12-14
