Purposeful chocolate

Focus and quick typing

lead to the perfect manuscript.

Focus feeds on dark tannic chocolate,

typing burns calories and sweet molecules.

The chemistry in my body brings

science and creativity to the world.

Chemical dinner

Carbon bond fed me today

In the shape of jolly meat and rich starch.

Chemistry had always given me a bad smile

But today made my stomach happy.

Energy, molecules,enthalpy,

It all makes sense now.

Saving time, wasting time

Colleagues to bother and coffee cups to hold,

salts to dissolve and liquids to stir,

see you standing and counting the minutes.

In moments of idle attention

ideas waiting in line come to the front

with a smiling face and the index up.

Nothing to do, plant seeds for tomorrow.

Drop it like it’s hot, not

Drop by drop it condenses

The small lovely molecules

In a glass joyful as a balloon.

Patient Weeks have been necessary

For a single result,

For milligrams of value

I will not drop.

Surrounded

Chemistry is around me,

my coffe tastes so bitter,

thank you little tannins.

Biology is in my belly,

my bread has many bubbles,

thank you budding yeast.

Lab day

Another day has passed
Through my clicks and my printings
In the busy lab
Who looks forward.
Lab animals feed on planning the future
And snack on tiny bites of promising mistakes
While the mission proceeds.

Elegance chasing

Delight is in the small things,
In the vivid color of solutions,
In the panicky stirring of a magnet,
In the regular wobble of a shaker.
Brief moments staring at the beauty
Rewards you for the effort
And make you chase your scientific elegance.
