A Design or an Accident?

Why is it
we do not consider
the chirrups of the birds at dawn
an accident but a volcano to be one?
In the frozen arctic
under a veneer of ice
is the zone of warmer water
an accident or a design for the fishes
to breathe and breed?
In the vast expanse of the desert
is oasis an accident
or a design for mini creatures to survive
and cactii to thrive?
In the vast creation
where avenues of time criss-cross
was that bylane where we met
a design or an accident?

Comment Thank you, Rupradha. You are right, woman is god's creative design and men are mere repetitions.
