The particles, embodying life flew ever outwards,
light shattering rocks in a star flung emptiness.
Hope burned into balls of molten fire and furnaces
that lit the shadows of planets: where mortality
was born. And out of nothing single cells formed
from beauty into an ordering, startling the biologists
and puzzling them with their intricacies of proteins,
knowing that somewhere in this a designer has
worked with love and the brought beauty into being.
