By the Stream of Photons

by Patrick Connally

By the stream of photons
Traveling since time was first seen
Radiating out from singularity
Still reported on my TV

Past elements shaped in movement
Pulling together giant lenses of gravity
Waves of scattered matter formed
Three generations from a star’s gut

Mud on the planet, light and molecules
Together in a chain, a replication, a reaction
The joining of elements, Darwin proving
The energized protein, the chains of joining

The dividing, the infecting, the eating, the budding
the socialized, the sexes growing bigger
Cells, division, replication, selection, the sensing
The sub atomic joining building to sense, remember, discover

The stream of photons traveling since time was first seen.
