[Hydrogen Heredity]
by Teresa Bonham

[Transmutation by Francene Hart; click for larger image]
by Francene Hart

Behold the great star
the sun of man
commanding planets to orbit
on an elliptical plane
like DNA
a mobius strip
(rubber band flip)
energy and light
captured on a string
suspended mid-air
swirling twirling
constantly revolving
inside this thirty-two year old
soft pink shell
my personal garden hel-
iometer granting me powers
to soothe and sedate
to reach beyond this cosmos
and touch the fringe of your universe

Bio: Teresa Bonham has been writing poetry for many years and is a second-year MFA student at Saint Mary's College of California. She is also a special education teacher.
