‘Wings Of a Molecule’ By Christopher Collingwood

A molecule imposes –
stoic in its chrysalis,
precise in its beginning;
it knows its place
amongst the gases,
bound to principle as a liquid;
it seeks liberty with
an opportunity, forging
a complex rhyme as it
coalesces with another,
requesting pardon from
its subtle form.

In a lattice of combination –
it imposes upon nature,
offering itself to be an
amino acid, indulging
as a protein or shaping into
an enzyme; once precise
in form, it now seeks
to escape its confinement;
growing wings to shape a
new biological essence,

imposing on truth; knowing no
observation can easily reproduce
the inspiration of nature;
the universes progeny, awakening
change, so life may exist.
