Nature's Answer

What intelligence exists in our genes
that give them orders to build these machines?

What recipe is found within a seed
that brings forth such variety and breed?

What logic dwells within the flowing air
that makes it disperse and spread everywhere?

What is the wisdom that keeps us alive
to consumes energy just to survive?

What thought gave birth to our universe
that Man yearns to understand and traverse?

The puzzle is the answer that we learn
and discover in awe of all we yearn!

About this poem

I have always found that complex answers exist in the most common things...and the universe is not random, but a pattern of clues in the formation of an intelligent universe.

    I like your poem. Every day, we walk past so many miracles, not focusing closely enough to formulate the important questions that you ask.

    Its me again, don't you know that God can live in you ? If He does, your life is not your own anymore. Its the Holy Spirit, the Holy Comforter that dwells in you !

      - While I appreciate your response, I say it's an empty gesture to just say everything is God without looking at the data and trying to understand the nature of things. Then, when you've uncovered the secrets, you will appreciate the wisdom in things much greater than just blank faith. My opinion of course!

    Not a good chat / comment feature, can’t see conversation history. If you ever come to NY, look up, reach out, we’ll get a coffee
