chloroplasts inside the cells of a leaf

A single starch granule from a potato tuber

Open the lid.
What do you see?
Black slimy bugs
running, scurrying, bumping
in the box.
Feed them starch.
What do you see?
Dark inky black carp
growing, growing
big as a giant jelly baby.
Lucy Aitken Age 9

Crowding together resembling clocks,
Loud and clearly ticking and tocking.
On and off the rhythm went.
Clocks all shapes and sizes.
Key parts of the clock never stopped.
Skinny hands turned round and round.
