Unraveling - an art work by T Newfields


someday it will no longer be a mystery
how paramecium from ancient seas
became creatures
in starships traversing galaxies

someday we'll understand
how all life came from stellar debris
& cosmic dust contained mysterious seeds

someday today's so-called "advanced" discoveries
will seem simple & matter-of-fact

If we cooperate
& live in peace
our offspring will
witness many discoveries:

we're not the final products
of evolution –
just tiny worms
moving forward
one fraction of one inch
