In the woods the silence is a guest
Of squirrels and blackbirds.
Silence announces danger
And my hair stand up
Ready to react.
Tiny noises from near and far are safety
Reminding you life in all its scales
And an environment you can trust.
This natural noise oscillation
Is vital also in the lab
Where activities soak in small words
And results come from focused questions.
Being grateful is a blessing
That opens your eyes
To the magic of evolution and its products.
The rainbow in the water
Are Fluorescent proteins that swim in the sea.
In the lab, they enchant the students
Who struggle to accept the reality
But like small magic sticks are close on our side
to uncover the hidden crazy cells under the lenses of a microscope.
Value the small, be grateful
Accept the unknown.
