I wouldn’t go

as far as

to say I’m

making a

scientific career.

It’s more about

hourly trying to

fathom.


For

each knowledge bit

- while petty -

stitches me more

to the universe

endless.

The title is inspired by Haruki Murakami's novel "Dance, Dance, Dance" where the narrator refers to his job as columnist for a local magazine as "shovelling cultural snow".

I think this is one of my favourites - although I would say you are doing very well in your scientific career! I also want to introduce you to Fouad El Baidouri, who is also interested in scientific poetry https://naturemicrobiologycommunity.nature.com/users/20696-fouad-el-baidouri

Thank you Ben and I really like this:

"...-while petty -

endless.''

Thanks a lot Ben! I hope Fouad will soon post some of his works, I'm looking forward to reading them!
