Failure to Comprehend

Behold the cosmos's bounty
Where elements combine
Into leopards and ladybugs
Dolphins and sea fans
The hot spring's white mists
The glistening sweat of man
See the infinite display
Black holes and stellar lights
Gifts of such generosity
This unfolding diversity
Unnatural the shadowed 
History of man--the claims 
Of one path, of one way
 Amidst such an array
Of wisdom and worlds
Therein lies our failure 
To comprehend
