Making All Things Right
Minutest of the infinitesimal
In gravity’s faint force, perceived,
Yet bears that energy
The weight of collapse
Supernovae’s center demise
Convey with you its secret;
Origin’s designator: neutrino.
Epicenter of a single cell
Swaddled in protein weave, tractable,
Yet commands the cell
Duplicating double helix
Energy’s creative source,
Trans-human, exceeding 99% identical;
Life: deoxyribonucleic acid.
Essential to all organisms proliferate
Given to disequilibrium, vapor,
Yet generates matter, all forms
Ornate biochemical scaffolding
(though P’s having a bad minute);
Primordial ingredient: atom.
Not a thought experiment of fairness
Nor a lady’s balancing act, scrupulous,
But bears, commands, generates, Being
Piercing time and space, Relating,
Flow lavish water, quenching
Making right amid all creation, Creator,
God’s intent: Justice and Righteousness
Good and Gracious God, I celebrate your mindful attention on me and on ______. Thank you, for the work you are doing in and through us. Amen.
