[This is a short but powerful poem by Mary Louise Decker, who says:” I was thinking largely of the abundant evidence for intelligent design in our Universe.”  I am astounded that people can ascribe the incredibly intricate details of life that science explores (e.g. DNA) to some kind of chance explosion of energy and then still disparage faith; to believe this is all chance requires more faith than I (quite a questioning sort of bloke) can muster. Thank you, Mary, for this poem.]

In deepest, darkest outer space,
Where countless flaming stars were hurled,
In complex cell machinery,
In DNA, wound up and curled,
In every butterfly or flower,
In countless wonders of this world,
See there the Master’s signature,
See there His banner bright unfurled.
