Sonnet 1: Hypothetical

Rating: 4.8

If freshly cloned, with memories intact
Unable hence to occupy one ground
Our senses would not duplicate exact
the information beaming from around.
A plentitude of photons would collide
(Read physics to explain precisely how)
And steadily our shared thoughts would divide
To render subtle change in either brow.
But over time our paths may fly apart
So how could we be judged by any mind

Should one evolve an ever-loving heart

Wow great sonnet which take the old form and moulds it into the modern not a thee or thou in sight. So hard to write a decent sonnet and you have surpassed here well done Yet sadly I can see we must be built On necessary pangs of senseless guilt. Loved the last two lines so which end this beautifully balanced work Thanks for sharing has inspired me to write a sonnet again

Interesting poem. How would two lives interact and react. Pirate Girl says she would be willing to clone (cleave) me in two with her shark tooth knife, for scientific purposes, of course.

The concept of diverging clones evolving separately from a commonality is fascinating and means I should get back to work before I lose myself.......
