Science is the poetry of reality - Dawkins

How I'm rushing through this! How much each sentence in this
brief story contains. "The stars are made of the same atoms
as the earth." I usually pick one small topic like this to
give a lecture on. Poets say science takes away from the
beauty of the stars - mere globs of atoms. Nothing is "mere".
I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them.
But do I see less or more? The vastness of the heavens stretches
my imagination - stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch
one-million-year-old light. A vast pattern - of which I am a
part - perhaps my stuff was belched from some forgotten star,
as one is belching there. Or see them with the greater eye of
Palomar, rushing all apart from some common starting point
when they were perhaps all together. What is the pattern, or
the meaning, or the why? It does not do harm to the mystery
to know a little about it. For far more marvelous is the truth
than any artists of the past imagined! Why do the poets of the
present not speak of it? What men are poets who can speak of
Jupiter if he were like a man, but if he is an immense
spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?
 -- Richard P. Feynman, a footnote in "Six Easy Pieces"


Words of poet-naturalist René-Richard Castel: “A poet must not aim to teach and advance a science as much as to show its advantages and make it loved.”

We have the beautiful  science - art - literature and art - literature interplay in the discussion forum and to know all about the relationship between Poetry and Science go through the comments section.

Very nice, Prince. Only we can understand us better than others.
We add our poems as discussions. You too can do that.

He brightens a canvas with shades of yellow,
And many think he's a jaundiced fellow;
But Alas! He says,"just let them bellow",
It's their indirect way of saying just, "Hello".
The painters images maintain a stand,
Strokes and textures from a guided hand.
And what they say is anybody's guess?
Cause very often it's one big mess.
For the learned eye it's just called art,
To the artist of course,it's straight from the heart.
From Leonardo to Picasso and Roy Leichenstein,
They're a motley lot considered half insane.
But for all the conjecture and misguided adventure,
They still are the ones with a sinister plot.
So whatever you say or the games you play?
The painters are sure that they're here to stay!

Thanks for being a part of you,
Poets speak a heart thats true.
Each one uses a different hue,
Never mind it be BLACK OR BLUE?
Always trying out something NEW!!!.....PRINCE
