A Great Wonder


It is no wonder
the grand Universe
does not go asunder
which is so diverse
as a spider-web grand
made up of Galaxies billions
with many a connecting strand
of Stars trillions and trillions.

It is no wonder
when our complete Solar system
in its motion performs no blunder
with its Planets, and Sub-system
being a part of Milky Way
along with asteroids and comets.
All the components with precision play
from their appointed posits.

It is no wonder
the Earth revolving around the Sun.
Even when we ponder
the circles of the Sun's turn
to the centre of the galaxy
of stars in true radiancy.


It is a great wonder
and an exclusive mystery
as to how the kind human mind is a blender
of gore, and murder is the query!

    Man is so ambivalent- he hides behind the contradictory traits of a cruel wild beast and a gentle refined being! How these antithetical elements can so harmoniously co exist is a real wonder above all other wonders of the universe! A great poem! (Report) Reply
