A Mindless Universe

What is beautiful,what is no
Only mind can tell us so
Were Intelligence not around,
Why should  pearls us astound?
For what purpose are they here,
Unless some soul to endear?
That coruscating sunset glow
Creates wonder down below.
A flower,delicate and wild,
Can reduce us to a child
Yet mysteries outwith  our present ken
Will some day orbit within our scope  when
We will strive our ignorance to dispel
In embracing the romance of their spell.
Can this innate desire to meaning find
Be but a pale reflection of an eternal mind?

    Wistful, poetic and tantalizing. We only use a relatively small portion of our brain. Perhaps one day we will learn to use the whole of our brain and realize our full potential. Then, we might begin to really understand the wonders of the cosmos. A good, thought-provoking write. Regards, Robert.
