From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


the lightest of gases would be all

but for their resonances

it emerged in fire, all matter followed

released in the ashes of a dying star

it swirled for billions of years

swirled until a new one formed

swirled into our home

swirled into the air

they produce themselves from the air

entrap the light in their green formation

we consume them spend their light and release it

and they take it back again

what gives it such power

four bits, four openings

to build chains of every shape

and chains of shapes to write life
