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 center 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 .

It's the particles of the past that made the planet it is today. This is another poem that I've so enjoyed writing Olive. It would be wonderful to sit down and talk to you, especially about this poem > James :)

I'm dumbstruck at your comment Maurice. Of all the comments I've had, this is by far the most complementive. Not the latter, but the former. Thank you doesn't seem enough, James.....
