Every minuscule bud projecting from fertile clay; evolved into a fragrant flower;
intensely spreading its ravishing aroma,
When sprinkled regularly with bountiful water blended in commensurate
proportions of cow manure.
Every mystical star sighted in the cosmos; evolved gradually into the
When perceived with a perpetual vision; amalgamating the entire sky in the
condensed silhouette of whiteness.
Every bare brick coated with flimsy sand; evolved painstakingly into the
When stacked dexterously forming a tall structure; slapped vigorously with
fillings of piquant paint.
Every egg impregnated with yolk; evolved assiduously into an innocuous
When provided conducive amounts of heat by its mother; nourished in entirety by her blood.
Every hillock of silver sand; evolved into the mammoth mountain with steep valleys,
When the mighty wind deposited a conglomerate of mud and debris on a daily basis;
thereby changing complexion of the inconspicuous pile.
Every wave of the tiny river; gradually evolved into the gigantic ocean,
As it onerously flowed confronting a plethora of bulky branches and stone; finally linking with the frosty ocean.
Every bit of tentative fish floating insipidly in the sea; evolved after several years into the preposterously huge whale,
As it unrelentingly fed on a relishing meal of coral and sea weed; basked for marathon hours in full light of the radiant Sun.
Every chimpanzee inhabiting the dense forests; evolved after infinite years into man;
After undergoing dramatic metamorphosis; learning to acclimatize with the civilized society.
Every drizzle of water trickling from the sky; sequentially evolved into thunderous rain,
With accentuated accumulation of ominous black clouds;
provoking the assemblage to pelt down in fury.
And every bit of hatred residing on this earth; eventually evolved into perpetual love,
When dealt with tumultuous passion and unbiased love; a philanthropic attitude to care.
