At The Nano-Scale


At The Nano-Scale

hydrophilic surfaces
hexagonal pyramids
high spin configuration
hadron absorbing quarks

networked by
nature’s tiniest secrets

axial stability
atoms for the beyond
a taste of
a microcosm that’s
always been

generated particles
gloopy friction
glued together

molecular technology

into the age of nano

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. this is really cool.. we were visiting the physics university in basle and got a teaching about nano technology…i find it highly fascinating..loved your poem tammy

  2. inclusively
    into the age of nano


    the age we live in, yes?

  3. I really like the juxtaposition of the monumental and molecular… And good to see this particular nano…scaled up and preserved for posterity

  4. Another fabulous read. If you enjoy a high tech thriller novel about particle beam colliders and finding God at the point of collision you might try a novel by Douglas Preston called ‘Blasphemy’ what a great read. It’s a is science God and vice versa and do they actually go together as one. Fascinating.
    There’s also a guy over at Hubpages called Mentalist Acer who is so interesting to read Mentalist Acer He is always a good to read, sometimes way over my head with it’s science etc but, you may enjoy or even wish to challenge what he has to say. This is just one example of what he covers in his hubs.

  5. This is fascinating in the way only teeny-tiny particles can be … love what you’ve done here.

  6. Very cool write! I loved the assonance—and nano-shopping–Thank you!!


  7. Nano technology is fascinating…really cool poem.

  8. Love the repetition. Works so well, and the words each each perfectly.

    Great work here.

  9. insanely
    in your debt

  10. I love the urgent flow of this … “monumental molecular technology” – I really like that. An intriguing write for sure.

  11. breaking down things to that level is truly fascinating and to build things on that level, while beyond me is truly fascinating as well…

  12. This is fabulous… and interesting… a molecular world you magnified for us to see.

  13. I am in awe of your combining science and poetry ~ fascinated with the terse words too ~

  14. I investigated DNA nanotechnology in college and briefly learned about buckyballs and other fullerenes. A truly fascinating, far reaching area of science. Thank you for your excellent integration of the concepts into poetry.

  15. wow, nano your awesome on how you think of the creative way to write.

  16. The poem plays and the subject fascinates. Images pop off the page and I think I can see, touch, and feel them. They may change everything – all over again. The way we think, the way we work, the way we change. Well done!

  17. The science and poetry seem such a strange combination. I feel privileged to read it intermingling in you.

  18. Well-done! These things are absolutely fascinating… xxxxj

  19. Oh this is so cool ..Science meets art 🙂
    loved this

    molecular technology

    into the age of nano

  20. I love these sections:

    networked by
    nature’s tiniest secrets”

    “gloopy friction
    glued together”

  21. you had my brain, ah thinking:) I even looked up some words:)

    great poem and super enjoyed it!


  22. good keeps flowing all the way throu,very cool picture too.
