These collaborations of poems are based on death, love, and loneliness. The reason for these poems is to combine science poetry into something sorrowful and depressing. The major themes all of our poems have in common are the atmosphere that the organisms inhabit and how they interact.
Love Poem For Sun From Earth
By: Caleigh Barnaby
Without you I couldn’t contain life
Without you I wouldn’t contain air
for my producers could not achieve photosynthesis.
I would only be a regular planet in our solar system
without you I wouldn’t be discovered
without you we would have no identity.
Without you there would be no warmth for my crust
for you are the main source of energy that completes me,
you are my night and day.
When I spin around you with my axis at a tilt
we complete our cycle at the end of the day,
sending half of me away and the other at rest
what would I do without you sun?
I can’t have you too close nor too far
Life would end as we know it once you go away,
though that one day when you finally pull me in close all life will end.
I love you sun.
The Sad Life of a Fish
By: Stephanie Londeau
An aquarium where aquatic specimens live.
I liked this fish I saw and put him in an aquatic chamber.
The number of which organisms, like the fish himself, live in a certain area.
They, like the fish, eat things like plants.
The process where organic matter is broken down into its component elements.
The fish, himself had began decomposing.

You were once my love, once my life.
You were my ecosystem that I called home.
You were once beautiful aquatic view, in your own way.
I loved seeing you care for all biotic and abiotic things.
It was joyful.
But it then ended, you piece of crap.
You killed me.
So now I’ll let you know: the perfect system we once had will forever be broken.
Your dead love,
Dead Bob the Fish
Sorrow and Despair
By: Afnan Imran
I am the last living thing in this tower
I am surrounded by leaves, twigs, and organisms that are breaking down their organic matter into component elements,
The fish, the worm, and the two damselflies,
Everything is dead except for me and the plants above me,
I could smell the pond water beneath me and the animals that are decomposing
I am the last survivor in this tower,
I am the Sow Bug
