Ordinary Wonder

Can it be
that all there is
emerges from this simple combination
of circle/curve and line,
of light,
and dark,
and color?
How then,
if that were true
could we ever declare
one combination to have
more value than another?
Surely one might be more pleasing to the eye,
but wouldn't that largely depend
on which eye it was
that did the looking?
Rather than comparing compositions,
Could we not spend our time in marveling?
How extraordinary it is,
that everything that is
is rooted in such ordinary wonder!
