    Microbe a good poem and recited well. Its beauty lies in the subject and theme it gives. Science being the investigating task of the universe and living beings the importance of science and such facts are useful in poetry also to know about it to ordinary readers and surely the medium of poetry is highly useful it seems. This poem on microbe a beautiful and marvelous one. (Report) Reply

    Microbe is the spawn that has created so many species by evolution! Nothing can be indeed predicted about its course as the poet infers by his own observation! (Report) Reply

    Nice descriptive microstudy....this felt more of an exercise of expressing to the masses the delight he witnessed rather than what i see as serious...Then again how would you make it more than what it is....interesting.. i learnt something here... (Report) Reply
