Glass- a molten mass in the furnace-

Drawn out into silvery blobs:

Then blown into shape, patterned, embossed,

As vase, goblet, chalice, bowl.

Glass- drawn into tapering points,

Clear through, with unplumbed velvety depths

Polished smooth and soft: and brittle.

Glass- many-faceted cut crystal:

Brilliant lines and patterns

Clear, cool and symmetrical.

Beauty captured as solid image–

A frozen ballet or concert-

A painting of moonlit wings;

As the chemist coldly states-

“Supercooled sodium silicate”–

I wonder , does the Creator say softly–

Only a human being-

Only some carbon-based life?
