Natural world for wonder
Vibrations, energy as atoms.
The quantum, physicists fathom
Molecular bonds of all sorts.
Chemical identities in charts.
Dna within a cell, replicating.
A cell within a body, consuming.
Psychology, societies, personalities,
Governments, economies, commodities.
Family, friends and foes, the unknown.
Emotions, appetites, and curiosity.
Poems, history, fictions, and theater.
Dance and meditation, arts and philosophy.
Birds, Insects, reptiles, mammals, fish.
A mess of systems, clocks ticking,
Within the Earth, a single sphere,
A ball amongst its relatives, divided.
Revolving solar bodies, eternal gravity.
Dance 'round a star, dim or bright.
Sun a giant, birthed in galaxy.
Galaxy among the billions of clusters.
Emerged from singularity, an origin.
Structure of substance, essence.
Appearing behind eyes, an image.
The vision and sound, thoughts,
Of the things inside and all around.
