Atom and Even

The timeless truth of the witness-self

Unfurls like the perennial flower-of-life

Whose healing blossoms serve to immunise

An innocent mind from the absence of light

As nightfall casts its illusory lies

That seduce and fool

Spellbound and mesmerised

By the silver-blue hues of an unfaithful moon

In cardinal pursuit of creature-comforts, habits and desires

Tall-tales told, as ever-lengthening allegorical-shadows hide

From the glow of the Atom and the Electron’s abiding glide

Their skillful dance of incubation

Weaving a star-shaped womb, cocoon-of-protection

An impenetrable nucleus-of-love around Proton and Neutron

Joyfully singing and humming

Calling the clay-of-matter into being

A sonic architectural evening-song

A right-ascending conjugal emanation

Of the exalted Even

Extensions of the undivided One

Multiplied ad infinitum ✩

There are two types of particles in the nucleus of an atom, which are the Protons and the Neutrons. The number of particles in the nucleus depends on what the element is. For example, Oxygen has 8 protons and 8 neutrons in the nucleus and Phosphorus has 15 protons and 16 neutrons in the nucleus. The number of protons are determined by what the atomic number of the element is. The number of neutrons are found by subtracting the atomic number from the atomic mass. Read More:
