EARTH and SKY

The gardener leaned on his spade
Looked at the scientist with disdain,
“As I stand on this life-filled Earth,
One pinch of garden soil
About a gram in weight
Contains millions of bacteria.
Several thousand species not
Known to science.”

~

The physicist adjusted his lens,
“As I look up at the life-filled sky
With the multiverse of pinpoints of light,
Each tiny dot in the sky could contain
Many varieties of life in many forms,
Then the unexplained dark matter
That is invisible never seen,
Is a puzzle to us all”

~

The gardener grinned at the scientist,
“I have dark matter here that nourishes the soil
and helps the crops to grow.
If your dark matter does the same job
Who is responsible for producing it?
My dark matter is converted waste
Until it is recycled on the land”

~

The scientist grinned and replied
“There is a God!”

 Marg was whisked through customs and boarded the yacht to find the Brigadier with several of her former colleagues already aboard. A meeting was hastily arranged to discover the identity of the informant inside the organisation. The suspect became obvious and one of the team left on a mission.

 The journey to the familiar island was uneventful. The Brigadier and his team conducted several meetings where Marg became aware of her role in the up-coming operation.  Marg was to play a key role infiltrating and securing information on Dr Dickus, a rogue scientist who was in control.
 Six weeks later she was aboard a helicopter to a mystery destination known only to her and the Brigadier. As the helicopter made the approach to an airfield in the USA——-
