Such a wonder
 

Walking the fields today I asked myself why do

Dock leaves grow so close to stinging nettles

And moreover, why do complex calculations

Work, why am I lost without my computer and

Why is the world so fascinated by black holes

Dark matter and time travel? Are these things

Connected in some way? I think they must be

 

We live on a three-dimensional platform heated

By the sun and cooled by its absence. A place

Conveniently organised into seasons and whereon

Everyone tends their own Garden of Eden

 

Space is our domain and our home a spaceship

Travelling around the sun at over 67,000 miles

Per hour and rotating at over 1000 miles per

Hour. - I'm surprised we have time to ignore

Such a wonder
