Coronal Loops

“A coronal loop is magnetic flux fixed at both ends, threading through the solar body, protruding into the solar atmosphere. They are ideal structures to observe when trying to understand the transfer of energy from the solar body, through the transition region and into the corona.” ~Wikipedia

And now, the poem: CORONAL LOOPS

 In shoes of fire

the Sun does flips—

arcs of triumph,

energy blips.

 

Ectoplasm?

Orange neutrinos?

Sport with magnets?

Jalapeños?

 

The fact that light

plays with matter

puts science first—

top of ladder.

 

So run and rise

to curve and loop

and keep the heat

of conscious group.
