THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM ๐Ÿ’› BRIAN ๐Ÿ’› A 7x7x7 Creative Reciprocation Poem !


A  7 x 7 x 7 CREATIVE RECIPROCATION POEM is an ENIGMA !  You select a BOOK (any BOOK) 1.  You turn to page 7  2.  Read the 7th Line (that is your Subject)  3. Write a seven line Poem on that Subject !  For EASTER (instead of an EGG) I has been given a  Book by my Sister. *Mendelyevs Dream - The Quest for the Elements* I hadnt started to read it - So I opened @ page 7 and read the 7th line. 


*Almost immediately MENDELYEV fell asleep ~ and had a DREAM*


So I had my title *AN IMPOSSIBLE DREAM* - All I needed to do now - was to Fit the most important Scientific Concept in the 19th C *The Periodic Table of Elements* (see above) into a Seven Line Poem !  MENDELYEVS simpler version - based on the then known  63 Elements was published in 1869 and met with both support & skepticism. MENDELEYEV described his Dream thus ~


*I saw in my mind a TABLE where all the known ELEMENTS fell into place as required. On awakening I immediately sketched it out on a piece of Paper. The elements were arranged in order of increasing Atomic Weight. This is what I had been searching for !  I called the TABLE ~ THE PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS !* 


This is my 7 x 7 x 7 POEM  *AN IMPOSSIBLE DREAM



Arranged in ascending order of ATOMIC WEIGHTS (and leaving some gaps !).

*A PERIODIC TABLE* (similar to picture above) of 63 elements was revealed.

It was supported by known (1869) Science and the findings of other Chemists.

We now know that the Elegance & Purpose & Design of the PERIODIC TABLE

Is due to ORGANISATION of the ELECTRONS inside the ATOMS of each ELEMENT

The ELECTRON was not discovered until 30 years later by J J Thompson !

    Good write A&B. Oohh ,we'll all be scientists. It's educational on 'ere!
    In the Bible I have this line is: '[and Noah opened] the window of the ark which he had made' (part of Genesis 8 v.6). Hmm, a theme for a poem?
    I don't mind some modern versions, but not 'The Message' please. The line will probably be summat like 'Hooray! Bravo! let's go wild and praise'! Sounds naff to me.

    And - looks like an eye test at an opticians, that chart!
