The beginning of a story Read with me, if you desire At dawn a huge explosion Filled the void with fire, Cooled and hardened into rock, Orbits now another star, A life sustaining prison Caterpillars in a jar.
A thousand, thousand, thousand years, Then a thousand, thousand more Passed as though an eye blink Before a creature crawled to shore. What miracle was engineered? Creating ocean from a fire, Creating algae in the ocean, And life from muck and mire?
Was the engineer benevolent? With a careful laid out plan? Or is the earth a failed experiment Where the byproduct is Man? And if Man was unintended What results were meant to be? Would earth have been a better place With just oceans, land and trees?
Maybe chemical reactions, On this random, rolling stone Were responsible for all its life Chemicals alone. Astronomic odds against it, But the odds of Heaven are high as well. I cannot comprehend it. That story someone else must tell. Phil Lindsey June, 2015
I intended this to be much longer. Maybe it will be someday. :-)
