whynever poem #1

whynever poem #1

four boggling things:
first, that there is “is”–
that there’s any “is”
at all – second, that
this “is” has produced
life – third, that some
life is thinking and
self aware (maybe
more than we know) and
fourth, this aware life
possesses emotions; we
can love and care – such
amazing things – one
might add a fifth – that in
the reaches of an infinite
universe in time and space
amid forever – that I – and
you – are here right now
in the grand lottery of “be”
what are the odds for this?
