3 Moon Poems

July 30, 2018

Moon Park
invisible in day
starts stirring
as dusk settles.
Meet me my love
at Moon Park.

There is a place
on the far side of the Moon
that’s home to the shadows
that have been left behind.
They walk those moors
on that grey world;
itself a shadow
to a larger body.

Call me
the Moon poet,
and i’ll
light up!

The Origin of Life… IF

July 23, 2018

Concerning the origin of life:

IF life was hard to start,
it’s most likely that we are NOT here!

IF life was easy to start,
it’s most likely that we ARE here!

Seven Poems About Animals

July 5, 2018

A bee in the cathedral?
Get him out!
No one wants him there
but God!

the flower
seems to know
what to do!

from my door
high in the tree
I see a straw nest
my nearest neighbor.

can this mouse
help the lion?

busy people
pass them by,
but grandfather and child
love the birds.

I love to watch you dragonfly
when you’re hovering …
over there …
and not too close!

I kicked a stone
over the cliff.
A startled bird
rose up in it’s place!

The Origin of Life – chemical selection and the heat cycle

May 22, 2018

Here are some ideas on the origin of life and first reproduction.
The suggestion is that the day and night heat cycle was the force that produced chemical selection that led to life.

First Reproduction

Suggestion that some how the heat cycle of day/sun/UV then night and cooler temperatures on Earth, generated bases and protocells.

Suggestion that the heat cycle also generated more accurate base pairings, and longer linked bases.

Suggestion that protocells somehow began partially opening and later closing as a reaction to the daily heat cycle such that the most stable protocells in that environment survived.

Suggestion that somehow the heat cycle annealed and denatured bases such that the most stable base connections in that environment, survived.

Suggestion that protocells that opened and closed somehow contained bases, and that bases within the protocells were more stable than bases not in the protocells.

Suggestion that none of this was a single chemical fluke event in which a one time chemical reaction survived, unprotected and in a hostile environment.

Stable here would mean two things.
1. continue to exist in that environment.
2. allow to change to more stable versions in that environment.

This rough scenario gets rid of all fluke events, and replaces them with systematic chemical selection over millions of years.

When cell reproduction is set up, the division of a cell into two parts allows not only a daughter cell to come into existence, but it allows the father cell to grow in size until it reaches the maximum size for a cell and must divide again to continue to exist.
