What is day and night to You? 

Is it wrong 
that when I see neurons 
I see Your home-
Your nature 
and Your light
Explosive and elegantly designed, 
So perfect, 
that even within destruction 
I see order. 

Is it wrong? 

I look at Your command- 
wondering does it matter when it happened? 
Substantiations like stained glass mirrors 
Where light peaks through darkness
When gasses are cleared-
the birth of amoebas-
And voided you made beast- 
And from them came me-

 Is it wrong-
that when I look at        
          φ,μ,π*
I see a reckoning- 
Life spinning endlessly, 
built from Your prose- 

And as good as it is, 
I know 
it only is because of You
that days roam by- 

And I ask what is infinite 
What is definite and what is small

Is it wrong?

That everyday I feel You within me, 
Because of You, 
          I breathe. 
Because of You
          I think.
Because of You
          I am- 
one with You.
 
is this so wrong?





* Yom: from the Torah it represents 12 hours, a 24 hour day, or an 
undefined period of time. It is my belief that biblical translations, 
mistranslated the word, which is why many Jews don't take an issue with 
evolution, while Christians still seem to have a problem with this concept. 
For more on this idea of how science and creationism mingle without 
issues..please check out

**φ The Golden Spiral, related to the golden ratio..the spiral becomes larger 
and expands dependent on the ratio. The spiral is derived via the golden 
rectangle, a unique rectangle which has the golden ratio. When squared, it 
leaves a smaller rectangle behind, which has the same golden ratio as the 
previous rectangle. The squaring can continue indefinitely with the same 
result. No other rectangle has this trait. When you connect a curve through 
the corners of these concentric rectangles, you have formed the golden 
spiral. The Phythagoreans loved this shape for they found it everywhere in 
nature: the Nautilus Shell, Ram's horns, milk in coffee, the face of a 
Sunflower, your fingerprints, our DNA, and the shape of the Milky Way. 

μ= mu, probability distribution ratio within a population. Name derived from 
water. It is also widely used in the realm of mathematics, everything from 
physics, pharmacology, chemistry, even basic math.  

π= Pi =3.14 is a mathematical constant, to a circle's circumference to its 
diameter. It is found in mathematics, science, and engineering which makes 
it one of the most important mathematical constants.[2] For instance, the 
area of a circle is equal to π times the square of the radius of the circle.
The decimal representation never ends and never repeats. π is also a 
transcendental number, which implies, among other things, that no finite 
sequence of algebraic operations on integers (powers, roots, sums, etc.) 
can render its value; proving this fact was a significant mathematical 
achievement of the 19th century. pi * the golden ratio = 5.08320369.

I remember this one from PAP. It was a great discussion.

I like both versions. Is this the final one?

That's for following up with it! yes this is the final version. I just need to edit my notes a little bit more..but pretty much this is it. I hope the notations makes everyone feel like they are on an even playing field.

Very interesting poem. I thought it had a lot of oomph, so to spea, power behind the words. Nice sharing. Thanks, Tasha

i remember this one from the post-a-poem forum as well, what a great discussion! the inclusion of the symbols doesn't bother me at all; i tend to be more of an auditory-sequential learner rather than visual-spatial, but signs and symbols have always fascinated me, especially in a spiritual/mythical context. wonderful poem!

An intriguing piece; really enjoyed the last stanza, but it seems unrelated to the title. The repetition of questions using the word 'wrong' comes across (to me) as the idea of suffering from personal doubt, when it comes to the things of God. Is that what you intended?
