Treasure Island

Udiah (witness to Yah)

(1959 / USA)

fusion vs fission


Atoms attracted by great gravity
To be compacted into new nucleate
Absorbing energy to smelting rate
Combining into the next unity

The elements increase atomic weight
New ones form inside plasmatic sea
Reach critical mass from forces that be
The unstable fissure then detonate

That is the reason the solar flares warm
It's also the reason white dwarfs are hot
And the reason the red giants are not
It is why sun spots tend to cool the storm
The fusion-fission process of the sun
Emits light and heat for us to have fun


Fusion takes power
Fission gives off energy
Power of the sun

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Far beneath the plasma of the sun's surface, fission occurs and releases energy, while on the sun's surface fusion occurs and absorbs energy. Fission is the power of the sun and fusion its recycling process.

    Until the final helium flash
    and the sun becomes a red giant
    that consumes us on in....iip (Report) Reply

    Yes, but good sir, that danger is far away in time for earth we believe, and it is in fact the explosion of stars that has made our very existence possible, that produced the 'clay' (new elements) that God (if He exists) used used to fashion us so miraculously. We are stardust! And a God that can put all of these chains of events into motion with one creative explosion (The Big Bang, making Man's creation inevitable?) is so much more wondrous to me than the 'Parable' of Creation that God first gave us in the Bible when we were still children sucking at our mother's breasts. Maybe we have grown enough now that we can begin to switch to more adult foods? Science certainly is part of God's ongoing revelation to man for those that have eyes to see and ears to hear. And knock me down with a feather Udiah, but are you actually studying Physics these days? If so, you have given me new hope for mankind! Maybe we do have a chance to survive the self-centredness of our early childhood!

    Yes, but good sir, that danger is far away in time for earth at least, and it is in fact the explosion of stars that has made our very existence possible, that produced the 'clay' (new elements) that God (if He exists) used used to fashion us so miraculously.
