A Beakers Full of Love

Life is so mesmerizing
The sky above-
Bottomless, endless, unfathomable
Impossible distances holding the secret of
Everything that exists:
The universal chemistry kit
Which came complete with organic
Self- replicating life
Looking up, I can't imagine
All that I know and love
Came out of one furnace, one autoclave:
Art and music and living beings
Books and medicine and science
Things still unimagined right now
Maybe it's all in an obscure book
On some magicians shelf
That becomes a three dimensional
Panorama, only when he opens it
And our millenia are but
A moments ponder in his study
And he's off to yet more bubbling worlds
Stirring the seething cauldrons
Making forms out of mind
Making universes out of nothingness
And a beakers-full of love.

    A universal chemistry kit indeed and you seem, like Aristotle, to have captured some of the essences of the mixtures of life. Nice write. (Report) Reply

    The sheer beauty of your being able to see this in that wonderful mind of your

    A nice introspection of the wonderful plethora of experiences that are neverending and so oft forgotten. How I wish to have been able to write about them all from the very beginning. (Report) Reply

    You have all this and yet you think of more? Seriously, one of the best guesses I've seen yet. (Report) Reply

    my initial thoughts was that this was some sort of modern day conversion to Harry Potter, I do find myself agreeing with Ken (other comment) I may not be a religious person by nature but i am spiritual and i do beleive in a God, womeone who orchestrates the music of the spheres, and weaves a tapestry of life,
    in asuch a beautiful way that only faith can explain it. great thought provoking write (Report) Reply
