Pond Scum – A Poem (nicer than it sounds!)

We all came from the same pond

slime without mind coalesced

this is a unity we constantly forget

 

Not a heritage of shameful scum

but a lesson in what can happen

if we let things run

 

Showing us we are all one

and that time must be given freedom

to find equilibrium

 

A miracle more profound

played out over millennium

than the idea of creation

 

In a cosmic instant

a near spontaneous toy

of some omnipotent alien

 

We must pay attention

to the beauty that has come

from this humble thoughtless union

 

Our attempts to direct

the world, each other, our business venture

our mad demand to have control

 

Has no patience to let life flow

as it would naturally

into something good

 

We must accept

that we have not earned the right yet

to do more than observe

 

With great care how events

have their own consequence

and then fit ourselves to them
