The Science of Love

chemicals conspire in creeping caustic crawl

voluminous veins decry the seratonin withdrawal

such is the chemistry of love

.

dopamine, incendiary infiltrate

under weight of sighs shall consummate

the inexplicable science of love

.

yet beyond these clusters of chemistry

the flounce of frivolous formulae

wrenched from abstinence

an improbable covalence

are

we

    1. Hey, thanks!! I’m so late with my replies here; is so unlike me. I blame the blue skies and other sweet distractions of spring. I hope you are reveling in them as well!

      1. You are so welcome! And I am trying to accept the full swing of autumn I have here, no spring revelling for me, other than what I manage to do vicariously through all the spring time posts! Glad you are enjoying those blue skies and sweet spring distractions!

    1. So wonderful to hear from you dear Prashant – always feel good after a dose of your positivity!! This was one of the first pics I took with my mirrorless/macro lens too – kinda fascinated with the little hairs on these tiny flowers πŸ™‚

  1. It’s a long time since I was an industrial chemistry and even longer, since I studied chemistry, but I did enjoy your use of seratonin, and dopamine in the context of your lovely chemistry poem…. maybe my metamorphous process of changing into poet is slowing…..

    1. Ah Ivor, I appreciate your comments, in which I always happily glean a little more about your life. One of my favorite subjects at school was chemistry, largely because of an amazing teacher (yr 11/12) and the precise nature of chemical equations. My geek lives on haha! Hugs to you !

  2. Only you could weave science and poetry together so beautifully, preserving the essence of both, dearest Diana! ❀
    I could almost imagine the scientist with her test tubes full of philosophy, and deft hands pouring in the right amount of poetry for musical mixtures.
    The alliterative runs are like the strums of your guitar, the technicality reflective of the doctorly you; and the after effect – something only a true poet could conjure! ❀
    Such a treat to me whenever you post.

    1. I wanted to let your beautiful comments sit undisturbed for a while, like an elegant bouquet sitting on a window ledge – so colourful and making me smile every time I walk by. Just as I smile with the knowledge of other words exchanged and moments of laughter over the accumulating months.
      You are very special dear Ishu ❀
      Thank you always for reading….

  3. What a pleasure to find this in my mailbox, Diana! The alliteration, and accent on the ‘c’ commands the poem be spoken aloud. I can imagine the ‘f’s forcefully expelled as the poem builds tension. The master of poetics returns!

  4. Once again I adore the chemistry of your poems, here literally. Chemically speaking, I remember the will you titrate my nitrate one πŸ˜€
    the phrase in this that will remain with me is – an improbable covalence, are we?

  5. Ah…the pheromones…they are there working unbeknownst to us! Can you believe that we have made choices, real life choices in our lives based on these things? I shudder to think about it!!! 😍😍😍😍 Good job on another piece of poetry that stretches our brain and makes us think!

    1. Oh yes, I am an example of “drop everything, move across the ocean” for love – and I am not the only person I know with such erratic motivations.I think anti hormone vaccinations might work for some of us haha. Hope you are well sweet friend ❀
