Scripture

 

• • •

 

from the silicon chip
that spawned a myriad
galaxies of immediate
information

and the DNA
genetic code
that at conception
casts in concrete
a billion messages
for our construction

we may read Your glory
just as clearly
as in the larger
scripture of the heavens

where pinpoints of light
riding the infinite
empty spaces
provide
for the unclouded mind
on a moonless night
more than enough for wonder
