To My Children

For a period
Please reflect
Or meditate upon
Where you are now

If a building
Upon its design
And structure
In fact what
You see indicates
A designer and
A builder

Yet there are those
Amongst us who deny
The need for a
Designer or a builder
For that which is well
Beyond human
Capability that is
Ourselves and the world

By their line of thought
We are the product of
'Nothing' and if evolution
Finally becomes confirmed
By science it’s a reality of
Nature which nothing
Created

Yes please reflect if you have
The time upon the latter
And in due course please
Let me know the make of
Watch that mother found
As the tide ebbed and flowed
