NaPoWriMo, Day 1:
Last night, I watched, 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.' (* a Super Cool show - see bottom for more about this.) Today happens to be April 1st, the beginning of National Poetry Month and the NaPoWriMo - 30 poems in 30 days Challenge. I came across 'alliteration' at school (I am a supply teacher). My Instagram Doodle-A-Day Sketchbook challenge by @TinkerLab is Circles. All of this came together to serve as my 'prompt' for Day 1.
Billions of barely visible - and, even then, only with a Very Powerful Microscope (or a VPM) -
Smaller than small dancing circles
Make up life.
And divide and live and die
And change or die
LIVELY; they dance together and become greater than one tiny circle;
More alive and afloat, armed with allies in this Awesome dance.

Like the legendary original series by Carl Sagan, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, it is the saga of how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the series will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. It will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, such as theCosmic Calendar and The Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder and weaving science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.
