Prompt, by @shralec, was engage in poetic conflict with the scientific world-view. I chose the nano-world view. There are mathematical connotations to the title, in that we have prefixes like micro, kilo, nano, milli etc.

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. Thanks for the mention of the prompt…without it, it still had a rythmm and fluidity that

    Thank you for another view of our complex world.
    Peace♥.
