Nuclei dreams,
Our arms, wrapping,
Powering, pervasive,
Unwilling to conform…

Interstitial romance,
Between all else,
Gloriously shunning the norm,
Ordinary moments…


One neutron,
One proton,
Nuclear forces,
Our binding energies,
Blended in passion,

Building blocks of forever.

Heaven’s secrets,
Our bodies, draping,
Never to tell,
Never to share with the world.

Just living,
Cosmic glory,
Fabric, warm mantel,
Protecting us…

      3. It’s the way you use it. I get so lost in the sentiment that I forgot it’s something I know very little about. You weave it so well.
