Molecules

A Poem by Mallika Relives

Molecule

Miniscule

Diminutive

Divisible

 

Yet so powerful,

To be considered a unit

Functional

Structural

Integral

 

Under the  umbrella

Called matter.

That which can neither

Be created or

Be destroyed.

 

Energy in one form

Mass in another

Matter and molecules

Molecules and matter

With energy and waves

Make this chaos

Called Universe

Called Nature

 

The obedient planet

Rotates  centrifugally

In its vital frugality

Along the ellipse

That never quite exists

In terms of matter.

It is all imaginary they say.

Latitudes and longitudes,

Coordinates and medians.

 

Isn’t everything imagined then?

Dreams and reality?

 

Matter and chaos,

Matter and materiality,

Matter and molecules,

Destructible and diminutive


Molecules you make me,

So diminutive and destructible.

Thanks Travis. Appreciate the comment.
Wow. This sheds a lot of light on how we view our world. Who we are is just a bunch of electrical impulses and chemical reactions telling our brain what to feel. You've done great at showing the scope of existence. What really are we, compared to the infinity of reality? For that matter, what IS reality?

Thank you so much Clifford for your refreshing thoughts. Are we really more than the sum total of wh.. read more
as do the molecules of love....together they are powerful....alone, they are not..
but they can explode into nothing, so easily...
and sometimes we give others the power over us...to make us or break us.
nicely done...and of course...i prefer free verse...
