epigenetics

 

 

Biology is our crucible

memories and character

the metal ore, mind is its

flame. For uncountable time

 

we can hear the voice

in every ragged folded

corner; I am not my mother

or my father, but this rebellion

is the sum of displaced choices

the gifting of probabilities, reflected

in the hollow smell of winter air

awakening buried mnemonics

of my perception, being

forged by random

glances through

 

evolution's heavy door.

Dr., what are you doing???icon_surprised.gif I check Poetry Connection whenever time permits, and I noticed that you were showcasing a wonderful, highly lyrical "Love Poem -- Cubist's Self Portrait." When I looked today, I saw that it had been replaced with Epigentics.icon_mad.gif Okay ... so Epigenetics is good, too. icon_biggrin.png I like how the narrator recognizes his declaration (I am not my mother/or my father) as rebellion/... the sum of displaced choices/... reflected/in the hollow smell of winter air -- What a fantastic image! -- but I loved the other poem. I thought it was quite different and, in its own right, easily one of your best. I was hoping you would share it here, too ...

Dr.con, this is very nice poem - natural. The evolution of life takes different ways, and probably always is inspiration and provocation for biologists and scientific .

I like how the poem starts, very metaphorical and interesting:

Biology is our crucible

memories and character

the metal ore, mind is its

flame.

 

Like Tony too, I like the expression: " I am not my mother or my father" . That shows to me some point that maybe the humanity doesn't agree with all crazy experiments around. That reflection I got from the next part also:

 

but this rebellion

is the sum of displaced choices

the gifting of probabilities, reflected

in the hollow smell of winter air

awakening buried mnemonics

forged by random

glances through

 

evolution's heavy door.

 

Ending part is perfect and I totally agree with it.

 

Thank you for another wonderful poem.

Many Thanks Tony and Alek! Tony, I'll post my "a Love Song" and that will be my 3 for this week... Started a new job, that I'm up at 4 am, this week has been a little crazed;-)

Thanks, Dr. C! icon_biggrin.png I love that one, and I'll make my way over to it later today.

Started a new job, that I'm up at 4 am, this week has been a little crazed ...

Four a.m. is such an obscene hour ... No matter how early I go to sleep, my body just can't get used to getting up before six in the morning. I guess I'm more of a "night person."

this is fantastic! a great collection of thoughts and images concerning our origin, existence and humanity. i love the contrast between the personal and the universal.

To receive love, you have to give it...
