The human body is a miraculous invention,

thousands of minuscule parts working in harmony

to move, breathe, love and reason.

The wonder of it all

is especially apparent

when one small piece collapses

or wears away —

after all the human body

is flesh, bone and blood.


wrapped within the

protective wall of bone

is an even more extraordinary element, the brain.

For it is the brain that ponders

and experiments

and wakes us in the middle of the night

for a solution to the part that needs repair.

What a true wonder

the human specimen is.
