Wonder: Awe & Query

I often wonder
At nature’s hand
Both in awe
And as a query

Artist and creator
Of worlds fantastic
And unimagined
By lesser gifts, as mine

Is it all
A random quirk
Of physics
Chance and weather

Perhaps there is
Some scripted plan
The workings of
Programmed automata

Or is she there
With chisel
And a hammer
Sculpting for our pleasure
