4th Jan ‘12 (taken from my personal journal)

There are but a finite number of natural rules in this universe.
Each form of life chooses which ones to use and which to ignore,
the intensities of each; ever different.

The myriad life forms come but from the same mixing pot…
…the mixing pot of infinite possibilities
The differences between us are great, but the rules are few.
We all exist, then later expire, upon the same board of play.

Like the artist’s pallette, there are only a few colours,
But mixed together by the creative force of the universe,
there is no limit to what the artist can create.
