The War of Molecules

The whirling world is war.
In the darkness the star -
Fights against strenuous gravity
To hold itself together
and not fall into event horizons
that loom - across spaces like black lights of doom.
Even within the star -
there is war -
as molecules move about in frenzies  
and furore -
shifting into themselves and transforming
into new forms with new functions...
And still at war -
bursting forth – in nameless anonymities  
criss crossing and drawing strange symbols
seen only by space – in a primal dance of creation
out of the destruction…  of creation
And even the molecules  
are networks of war
as electrons whip and flash so brash and bold
And here on this old Earth's face…
The people patterned themselves after space

Author's Note
(I was told recently that the birthmark on my right cheek and the birth mark on my right cheek are battle wounds from a previous life. While I do find reincarnation an interesting concept, for which there is a great deal of compelling evidence, I tend to keep an open mind. This assertion inspired me to think and write about war.  I initially thought to write about the terrestrial states of war, which I would still like to do, but this is the direction the inspiration took.)
