DAY 17 - ELEMENTS

NaPoWriMo Day 17
*
Look at you! Writing past the half-way mark! Today, Neil Reid invites us to keep going by writing about the elements:
Let’s be elemental. Fire, earth, water, wind. They touch our lives every day. Choose one that interests you, then take a point of view that is not so much your usual. Observe what interaction you’ve known, or not known, with this element.
You might make it personal or take the element’s point of view (how might humans appear to you from that stance?) or wander where you may. Tell us something about your element that we don’t know.
You’re welcome to make your own rules, and as always, the most important point is simply to write and share, however it comes your way! Have fun!

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?


Clear your mind


of all acquired knowledge;

belief,

interpretation,

misconception.


Prepare yourself

For a meeting…


with your Self;


an entity,

existing alone.


There is nothing else.


Nothing at all..


A point exists,

outside of Life;

outside of Time.

A point at which

The Universe

is much smaller;


microscopic…


At this point,

it contracts

yet further,

to its origin…


a Thought.


The Thought is born.

Who am I?


Develops.

Why only me?


Left to fester,

creating

an Energy…


an Aura,


a single cell

can no longer contain.


Expansion occurs;


The Big Bang…


Hydrogen

begets Helium,

Lithium,

Beryllium,

Boron…


CARBON


Building blocks.


Fusion occurs.


Elements become compounds.


Science is born.


Science…


how things work,

the way they do.

How they come to be.


Evolution?


For answers,

explanations,

You turn to Science,


Mathematics.


Without logic,

Matter becomes

unpredictable,

unstable…


Self-destructive.


Application

of logic

ensures survival;


longevity.


Process runs its course

to conclusion.


The Universe

is created.


In terms of such

a vast expanse,

everything takes place


in the Present.


What is measured

in billions of years

by You,

mere Mortal,

is in fact


No Time at all.
