Ph: Physics: Delicate Balance - Accident Or Gift? - Poem by Brian Johnston

mountains bob like corks
adrift on liquid magma -
pond scum shelters life

Earth's magnetic shield -
magma's gift of moving charge
thwarts sun's deadly winds

continental drift -
neighborhoods fenced by oceans
breed diversity

random mutations
offer death or advantage -
unearned consequence

life's adaptation
to universe in motion -
the true face of God

Topic(s) of this poem: life and death

Form: Senryu
