Unknown Innocence

Ecclesiastes 3:1 [King James Version of the Bible]
 
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the 
heaven:

Prayer makes man human for in our innocence, we pray.
Knowing, that we're limited in sincerity; we seek.
Palm to palm, oft on our knees, childless, we of clay convey
the hope for healthy children to the Universe, we speak.

Our pairings blessed, our off-springs bloom, each yin seeks a yang.
Coupled moving forward walking hand and hand, yang calls to yin.
All we've known is but a part, a grain, falling from His hand; 
adult children pray oft on their knees since, we are akin.

Around and round the cycle rolls in Universes untold
whether the parts know or seek the whole, still they grow, and go.
Yet, only the sentient pray and dream, eyes half open, behold
the Eternal wonder of creation, yet ... who knows, who knows?

Does the quark pray for a quark, does the sun pray for decay
does the Universe seek black holes? Who can say, who can say?

    I love the way your mind went in the end. My nephew asks me similar questions. Who can say? You touch on one of my favorite topics. Duly impressive is how you've doubled almost each line with the syllable count.

    Another great sonnet . Prayer makes man human for in our innocence, we pray. "Knowing, that we're limited in sincerity; we seek. Palm to palm, oft on our knees, childless, we of clay convey the hope for healthy children to the Universe, we speak" Jaw dropping good!!!!! ANOTHER 7 WOULD GIVE A TEN IF IT WAS POSSIBLE.

    Very nice poem of nice questions. All things have no direct answers though others have. The things which have no answers yet to be known, let the Universe move towards the perfection. Thanks for sharing of this excellent poem. Loved always, my lovely friend, bl

    Like the last line especially. I am sure you know the song "Turn,turn,,turn which was written by Pete Seeger and sung by the Byrds. I should say a prayer for you in shul! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    no one truly knows, that is where faith lies awaiting belief..who can say? no one.. that is why it becomes personal to each individual,

    Debbie...such a deep write here...Your belief system is clearly seen here...Is truth subjective or objective...Is there something called ABSOLUTE TRUTH? Interesting questions you pause there. I don't pretend to get all the nuances, but you have written a wonderful piece...We do what we've been taught...but is it all what it appears to be? Hugs
