nano-birthing chamber


Diamond Nanotubes

Diamond nanowires are prepared inside carbon nanotubes by thermal annealing of diamantane-4,9-dicarboxylic acid under a hydrogen atmosphere.

nano-birthing chamber

infant cables in birthing chamber, reflexively bump, identical in the tub.
spidery filament flips in one bound: challenge to other nanostructures.
lost, lacking choices: fate not faith. blink and groan. stare and moan.
fluid in full slosh mode, suckling in pulp. dimples. blobs. formations
at the site of development. protective effect confirmed, uncompromisingly.

in grey waves, they majestically spiral and peak. filaments fracture,
independently race ‘round centrifugal tubules. relentless rotation.
ripples pass. progeny of the populace. reasonless, irrationally irritating,
come to golden light, on silvery rivers: (calm in blue space.) rubble fills the void,
incinerating contamination. struggle. wind filled. (never enters the hole.)

bubbles crack, smack and rumble: toothlessly grind to rubbery pulp.
super-novae, many, many magnitudes smaller, a perplexing state
of isolation, in a venue where surface tension creates cacophony.
no human will hear their dialogues and screeches: design of creation.
not one nano-being will sensorially recollect this first experience.

rumbles and moils in distracting high frequency. tenuous tendrils.
temporal travesty. trickery. tunneling. and then tranquil connectively.
unfamiliar abstractions. unexpected measurements on the boundary.
patches are blank spots in their memory: a leak in techno-verse.
fiber of space-damaged, roughly, transformedly processed matter.

they share a common experience: crests of hyper length cosmological waves ―
but smaller in number, surrounded by dense mathematics. jerky gravitational
spin down, phase factor one, conjugated complexity, nestling intentions.
in the birth canal: globes, branches, ringlet-tubes and electron waves.
nano-baby cables percolate into birth. emergence. vitalization. actualization.

Quantum Kisses


The image shows, in an artistic manner, the change in color when a quantum tunnel effect is produced in a subnanometric gap.

Quantum Kisses

Spatial wonder
when color changes
and lights interact
with the tiniest matter:
of subnanometer number.

Taking frolicking skips,
they translate forth and back
then twist, shake and tatter
in their sensual exchanges:
kissing without lips.

Within the silent gap
no bang, ring or clatter
in tight quantum ranges
they never come in contact.
As oil drops on plastic wrap

cause variegation to arise,
each sphere arranges
itself, then they stack
the former on the latter,
thus — a fusion vision disguise.

David James created a form called a Karousel. “It is a twenty line poem, four stanzas of five lines each.  The rhyme pattern is the following: abcda ecdbe fdbcf gbcdg.  The three inner lines (bcd) rotate in each stanza until they circle back to their original bcd form from stanza one.  Though each stanza is enclosed in a rhyme, there are no metrical restrictions.”

The poem is about he interaction between nano-sized spheres of gold in the quantum regime. This quantum regime has been identified thanks to the change of colour of the gap or empty space between these particles when these are at distances of less than one nanometre. This work, published in Nature journal, enables literally “seeing” a quantum kiss between nanoparticles. For more about this phenomena see Quantum ‘kisses ‘change the color of space  in Nanotechnology Now

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.
