Babies - God's Wonder

Babies, an amazing show of God’s wonder
We try to understand but can only ponder
How, that man and woman coming together
Is able to create history forever

Who forms the seed in the being of man
Who prepares the delicate insides of the woman
Who made sperm plus ova equal embryo
Who makes the embryo equal girl or boy

They use science to explain it away
There’s still a mystery to be solved ‘That Day’
One tiny seed that was intricately planted
Become the needed, America’s most wanted or adopted

Needed, maybe this was planned with loving care
Most wanted, because they made the devil’s way fair
Adopted, maybe this was carelessly done
Whichever way they came, babies are so much fun

Inspired by David Smalling  ( A subject he is passionate about).

    Joy, this is such a lovely reflection on the miracle of life and the happiness babies give us. And you couldn't have found a better source of inspiration than David Smalling, a truly brilliant writer whose talent amazes me. Terrific poem! Love, Carolyn
