Gentle Forceful Change

The single cell hovered in it's space
Looking calm and serene
Happy within it's place
But then from this level it is observed
DNA strands unzipping and replicating
In a churning stew of cellular goo
A loud "Crack!!" is heard
Within a billionths of a square inch space
Fractures are seen all around the cell
Slowly and painfully
With a noise like stretching concrete
The cell divided
Into a perfect copy of itself

Where there was one
There was now two
To the tune of the cacophony of sound and activity
Until a step is taken back
Seen from the distance of a microscope lens
The sound is unheard
The activity quite small
Barely any movement at all
Like a soap bubble's bursting call
