Loving kindness, or: Amoride

A piece of prose poetry

BREAKING NEWS: Dearly beloved friends, this just in!

Though understandably distracted by hugs, kisses, and pats on the back; preoccupied by thoughts of concern for others; and absorbed in supremely relatable feelings of loving kindness for all living creatures on Earth… good-hearted scientists at the lovely, scenic Heart… err, sorry… Harvard University have ever so lovingly identified an exceptional, new compound in our miraculous world’s precious water supply, which they have fondly and with deep, loving tenderness called Amoride.

Across this wondrous world of ours, many other sweet, good-natured, and passionate researchers who once worked on designing chemical weapons are now appreciatively, admiringly, and affectionately committing to the study of this extraordinary and fascinating discovery. Their work will be fully funded by governments, businesses, and individuals, and this- in parallel to fully funded research laboratories dedicated to ending global hunger; reversing global warming; and curing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and all other deadly diseases.

This is Humanity’s News Network, wishing you a joyous, delightful evening! We love you!


d’Verse poetry prompt

This piece of prose poetry was written in response to Selma Martin’s W3 prompt this week, which is to write a โ€˜prose poemโ€™ in the form of a news article you wish would come out tomorrow (imagine it will come out tomorrow).


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

  1. This is a lovely post. Interestingly I have been listening to a number of youtube videos where seers talk about new, positive energy infusing the waterways of Earth. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they were right and if scientists could identify it.

  2. Yes I get it now that you didn’t turn the process around in the story.
    And Amoride is not a tablet that helps prevent your body from losing too much potassium. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    All the same Amoride is a great discovery!

  3. โ€œdistracted by hugs, kisses, and pats on the backโ€ โ€“Aww, the perks of parenting. The best job in the world, ever!

Yes, by all means. This!

    โ€œpassionate researchers who once worked on designing chemical weapons are now appreciatively, admiringly, and affectionately committing to the study of this extraordinary and fascinating discovery.โ€ โ€” and Iโ€™m so fascinated to know this. And you and I know this is the way it will happen. Wait and see. Thanks for this, David. Spectacular mind of yours at its best! Thanks for this loveliness. I wish you miracles, David.
