in a double helix spiral

in a double helix spiral
of bases and pairs
a blueprint of living
in bonding strands
the inaudible language of DNA
that no one understands
voices its genius
in what it creates
from the nucleus of one single cell
genomes repeating
again and again
(gave Watson and Crick a nobel)
3 billion bits of info on each strand
75 trillion bits
in just one man
less than 6 foot tall
and yet
there are those
who defiantly say
there is no God
it just happened
that way
