After the bomb,
wreaked its devastation
and the world turned
life leached from crooked limbs
of blackened trees
and poisoned humans.
In the midst of chaos
a mother’s love lit up the sky,
just like the radiation
before the mushroom
imprinted shadows on our souls.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Physics with Björn – Radiation, also linked to Poets United Poetry Pantry
Björn has brought us another piece of physics to inspire our writing, and has enlightened us about the mystery of radiation.
He would like us to use radiation or the stories surrounding it as inspiration for a poem. You can write about the scientists, the weaponry or uses. I think that radiation can be used as metaphor for toxic emotions.
