When I was young I used to look at the stars

Contemplating their existence

I endeavoured to understand them

To learn the secrets of the vast world above

Yet when I tried to wade in the waters of astronomy

I found it too deep

Drowning in the complications of  mathematics and physics

So I turned instead to the small

The world of microbes and molecules

And that is where I stayed

Looking at the small world within

What I found there was remarkable

As every bit as awe-inspiring and miraculous as above

And all around us

It is only just a question of scale.
