I'm Just a Little Particle

I'm just a little particle created so long ago I swirled with many of me to help your Solar System grow For many years I spun I thought in never ending spin From that marvel the nebula your Solar System begins For those who are not very sure a supernova could have set the reaction A core attracted me in then collapsing in a fatal attraction The speed of which this happens picture a skaters arms by their side Rotational forces so massive spinning in ever glide This causes the cloud to flatten as me the dust is being drawn in Around a dense core it travels a star is pulled in to begin The more mass that is accumulated towards the centre of the disc Enough energy is now created nuclear reactions react so brisk In basic simple terms Hydrogen atoms in Helium fuse Releasing enormous amounts of energy your Solar System sings the blues The outcome of one of these bursts was the forming of your sun Granted, it took another ten million years but what you know now has now begun The next step in the journey of this incredible science feat Is the formation of the planets that you humans will eventually seek Eventually us dusts we stuck together to form the many of many rocks This process is known as accretion created by the science clock Forming in the flat plane over millions and billions of years Electrostatic forces allured creating your Solar System spheres I'm just a little particle created so long ago I swirled with many of me to help your Solar System grow http://www.thehighlanderspoems.com/space-3.php

James, thanks for the tip on ©. Bob's method didn't work for me, but copy and paste always does. Hope to see you posting some new work soon! Love, Carolyn

Excellent, James! Perhaps you were inspired by John Freeman's blog? There is some internal rhyme in this poem and it might make a good entry for Barbara Gorelick's "Time" contest, but I need to check the rules on length of entries. I share your view of the Solar System's creation, but I can blend this view with the religious perspective as well. Awesome poem! Goes to my faves. Love, Carolyn

From little particle to entire solar system. So many mysteries of the universe. You are always thinking of these kinds of things for your poems. Keep it up! Luv,Andrea
