The Tree/ A Jurassic flower; Size it’s/ Super power; Time no match/ For woods

Shall I compare Tree to a Jurassic flower?
Trees art more sturdy and more resilient.
Rough centuries do shake the darling buds of Evolution.
And Jurassic’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too frail the hand of heaven designs,
And often is his gold petal trimm’d;
And every generation from generation sometimes declines;
By chance, or time’s steady course, untrimm’d;
But thy eternal Era shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that generation thou owest;
Nor shall Extinction brag thou cool’st with thy shade,
Where in eternal soils of time thou growest;
So long as leaves can breathe, or roots tap free,
So long lives this and this gives life to tree.

The Collider

In seventeen miles of tunnel
scientists in the world’s
biggest basement
train set
finally found
a good time.

The physics version
of tasting both jellies
of a chocolate eclair
and a Boston creme
sent into one
sub-atomic donut,

magnets and
laser beams
push microscopic streams
time and again,
make perfect
jelly ring inside.

Twenty years of science
collide in one moment
my only question:
when do we
get to eat
the donut?
