Sonnet: Ubiquitous Love - Poem by Diane Hine

U nless a living creature clones alone-
B esides the single-celled, it's rather rare,
I nherited biology has sewn
Q uiescent pairing instincts set to flare.
U niting every animal as kin
I n similar design, cells synthesize,
T ime-tested love concoctions made within
O ur cousins in their various disguise.
U ncomplicated impulse guides the small
S wift action's called for when one's span is short,
L ess hurried lives are swept by rise and fall
O f rhythmic waves which tip their paths athwart.
V ibrations shake the biosphere surround
E sprit of countless love affairs unbound.

    In that essence diverse and complex life the force adapts and flows and in eons and in epochs onward goes, and seeds of love against improbability flourish and teams thoughtout the Universe to nourish, with consciousness a creeping boon, a viral Gaia, opportune. (Report) Reply

    A very scientific view of love - interesting and well written. (Report) Reply
