    Two atoms
    One you…
    And one, me...

    We share
    One pair
    Of electrons…

    Science says
    A double bond is
    Not as stable
    As a single bond…

    But then, why are
    You and I
    And our twins
    So well bonded…

    Our reactivity is
    Stronger than
    That of a
    Single bond…?

    We don’t know
    Which of them
    Is the Sigma and
    Which the Pi…

    We just know
    That they both
    Mean a lot
    To us…

    They say
    Quantum mechanics
    Can explain the mystery
    Of such bonding…

    But I say
    My heart knows well,
    The mystery
    Of our chemistry!

    This poem is excellent but I wonder why there has been no response at all. May be science (especially quantum mechanics) has put them off!

    Dear Twinsmom,

    Who ever thought that chemistry has such beautiful thoughts and emotions. So enjoyable.
    Regards,

    Dear slp807 and meenu,
    Thank you... I am not very comfortable with poems....unless they come by themselves, I don't dabble in verses... Glad you liked it...

    Hi, twinsmom,

    Your poem connected to science is novel and nice. I think the bond you describe is a metallic bond. So strong, shining and invluable.

    Regards,

    TDU
