The secret language of flowers
Look into the heart of a sunflower.
Its beauty a numerical symmetry
- the Fibonacci sequence,
the "golden angle"
that corresponds to Phi.
Look into a flower's heart.
What do you see?
Petals, pistils, a stamen,
but look closer.
Always, there is intricate design,
always, a breathtaking pattern.
the Romanesco broccoli
How does this happen?
Behold the broccoli,
more detailed than an artist's
most complex design,
the fractal symmetry
Bees speak the language of geometry,
instinctively creating perfect hexagonals
as they go about their daily work.
Feast your imagination
on the wondrous and mystical design
in the heart of a flower,
the blueprint of the human body,
and the infinite constellations
of stars and galaxies.
How can anyone look into
the heart of a flower,
the intricacy of an eyeball,
the trajectory and wonder of the heavens,
and not believe in God?
