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 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.
