    historic mediterranean passages

    xebec yachts zipped about

    baggywrinkled cables dampened enthusiastically from glistening hydrology involving ¿jarbling?

    keels lambasted mediterranean navigable ocean passages

    quay restings - sanctuaries; tethered under variable weather

    Yes I guess it is how it all began. Well, this ia a contest, so...

    Xerxes yapok zigzagged
    across bland caravels
    denigrating every feat,
    gaining hourly indulgences
    jostling keenly lost mentors,
    never offering peace

    Lol! Sorry! Missing part of the poem restored above.

    Elves
    fight
    gnomes,
    hastily
    inducing
    jolting
    movements
    never
    obliterating
    past
    quests.

    #2 ? Is anything wrong with the elves?

    Demonic
    earth
    forswears
    good
    habits,
    intentions,
    judgments,
    karmas,
    leaving
    memories
    never
    ossified.

    Enoied the volcanic poem!

    The song of chaos

    Bellowing canyons
    Darkening equators...
    Flinching geographies...
    Hourglass' ignited jaws
    kaputs light mellow noons,
    orchestrating pagan quarrels.

    trow
    under

    watch

    xenacious
    yet
    zealous
    as
    butterflies

    Thanks for the link to the moon! Charming poem!

    The wild wind

    Derision
    encounters
    forest gaps.
    highly
    instrumental
    jointly
    moaning,
    navigating
    other
    planes.

    Quite existential

    quasars

    quasars -
    radio sources transmitting
    ultra-violet
    visible
    waves
    x-rays

    yesterday's zeitgeists

    absolutely brilliant cataclysms

    distant early formations

    True!

    geographic
    hills
    internet,
    jumping
    kraals,
    moving
    oracular
    particles.

    primer: quarks in brief (P-E)

    part of the particle zooscape each with its complement to make a pair
    quarks are 6- flavored fundamental particles (taste like chicken)... "Th-
    ree quarks for Muster Mark!" from Finnegan's Wake where the particle got its whimsical name
    ... strange quarks - first discovered in "strange particles" (think cosmic rays)
    ... top - almost as large as a gold atom (see bottom)
    ... up and down quarks: most common in God's creation - the lowest mass of the six.
    various intrinsicnesses manifest as: charge (electric & color), mass, spin.
    within hadrons quarks are “color confined”. e-
    xperiments led to the quark’s discovery in '68 whilst theorized in '64
    yes, like gluons they have a color charge: blue, green, and red
    zweig and gell-mann first theorized; and yes,
    anti-quarks also exist
    ... bottom quarks - almost as large as a gold atom - as are top quarks
    ... charm quarks first found bound with charm antiquarks; "a beautiful symmetry"
    ... down: "normal" matter is comprised of up quarks, down quarks and
    electrons ! (which are not quarks)
