Haiku for Every Element – You’ll Love This Cool Site #haiku #sciku #chemistry #poetry #ChemHaiku

I just ran into this site and have to share. If you love science-inspired poetry, you’ll get a kick out of this.

A review of the Periodic Table composed of 119 science haiku, one for each element, plus a closing haiku for element 119 (not yet synthesized). The haiku encompass astronomy, biology, chemistry, history, physics, and a bit of whimsical flair. Click or hover over an element on the Periodic Table to read the haiku. Share these poems and add your own on Twitter with hashtag #ChemHaiku. From Mary Soon Lee

Electron shell blocks on Periodic Table

One of the cool things about the Periodic Table is that it organizes elements by their physical structure

Not going up there – nope – not going

Cold and harsh are winter winds
One lone bird blows by

Of a stormy night

Like a ghost I move
Carried on my silent paws
See, hear, smell the prey

What Is Lost #nature #poet #haiku #amwriting

 

Smoke from summer fires
Flows thick down dry arroyos
Ghost of rivers lost

Agave bloom in New Mexico

In my yard

Agave flowers
Lift their blooms above the trees
Reaching for the sun
