    God's Fingerprint

    On the Sistine, Michaelangelo painted God's fingered thrust
    giving with Love the gift of Life to Man fresh from dust.
    First breath, beneath the Heavens ! Second breath, on land and sea !
    From then 'til now, a thrusted finger sculpts his Destiny.

    Not long ago, Instinct was his primal need and guide when
    smells repelled and fires frightened and lightning made him hide,
    and stars up in the Heaven were just punctures in the night
    while reflections in the water were the ghosts he could not fight.

    Then Lightning struck and all beasts ran. He made a mental leap
    to stand his ground in Thunder's roar, a choice to "not" retreat.
    And Nature merged with Instinct to define Creation's goal
    from God's thrusted fingerprint now stamped upon his Soul.

    And if Time's compressed into a day, for beasts, for Man and flowers,
    then Life with many a cell showed up in just the last twelve hours.
    And Dinosaurs walked on Earth last hour ! Pre-Man, a minute or so !
    Modern Man, you and I only just got here, less than a second ago.

    Still time to learn from Wisdom ! Still time to shed the Fears
    of pain and War mourned by moms who've cried a billion tears.
    Embrace the Life that's precious. Be proud you're Man from dust
    and fashioned by the hand of God in a single fingered thrust !

    HH
