An Ode To Mind - Poem by Robert Murray Smith

Mind, fruit of the
tree of life.

You fell to bless man
through strife.

Made civilizations
in centuries past.

Moved us into the present
so fast.

Mind we owe everything,
without you we do not
exist.

Your electric fields
defies our understanding,
but we persist.

In uniqueness a wonder,
your perplexity surreal.

Electric, glia, neurons,
pulsating fields, seal.

Enabling blood to flood
barren cells into life,
without a strike.

You fire your arrows of
mind time by time, chime
spiked.

Everything you do, is for
us to be the best we can
be.

We bless you our minds for
letting us hear and see.

We bless you for letting us
talk, and perambulate.

We bless you for letting us
think by thought, our minds
are animated.

We bless your universe of
bright stars.

We bless you for turning
unreality into our memoirs.
