Our Mysterious Brain (a poem of inspiration)

Updated on August 1, 2015
Brilliance...our brains allow...
Brilliance...our brains allow...
What we hear...in our minds, to bow...
What we hear...in our minds, to bow...
All that is to be...held within, its values...
All that is to be...held within, its values...
In the majestic spectrum of our brains...its infinite avenues...
In the majestic spectrum of our brains...its infinite avenues...
Ours to see and then to comprehend...its meaning...
Ours to see and then to comprehend...its meaning...
Tries so...to escape our recognition...in it complexity and with humanity...intervening...
Tries so...to escape our recognition...in it complexity and with humanity...intervening...
AS we each look into the mirrors of our ways...
AS we each look into the mirrors of our ways...
For, as we are, but humans...with human thoughts...our capabilities...as to why we have not succeeded...
For, as we are, but humans...with human thoughts...our capabilities...as to why we have not succeeded...



Our brains...its study, we try to understand, still to be shrouded in a mysterious cloud,

Since time immemorial, from those old Grecian days...covered by this enigmatic shroud.

Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, great minds and fine examples, as great thinkers, all to be,

Could never fathom the enormity of the individual mind...its true nature, for them to see.


Glial cells, are the cement of our brains...its meaning "wise", as in language, that of the Greek,

Unknown to them all, its reflection, though seems very small...this, that we now may seek.

A universe of questions that we may ask, and these, seems universal answers, for us to give,

The comparison of each...of the brain's farthest reaches, multi-universes, within us to live.


The brain, as we know it, its functions, are quite profound, encased in its neat cerebellum,

The Frontal lobe...the behavior and the thoughts... abstract, creativity, ours not to live without.

The Occipital lobe, is for vision and reading, the Parietal, touch and response, its phylum.

Marvelous brain power, we think we may know...yet, beyond our range, a greater shout.


The Temporal lobe, both auditory and visual, right hemisphere, the left sides, our emotions,

The Left hemisphere, controls our right sides, language produced, in our best of devotions,

Our Cerebellum...balance, our posture, and Medulla oblongata, rhythmic beat, of the heart,

Brain's stem, a vital need, monitors bodily and sensory passages, of our faces, to be a part.


Glia...the brains cementing factor...such vital members...outnumbering neurons 50 to one...

Now comes thoughts from the recesses of our minds...the importance, as bright as the sun.

The reflective significance...regaled in our brains, this spectrum... was meant to be, as so,

Visual appreciation of a grand universal match...ours, to but look...and then...ours to know.

and from the dawning of man...so...our own humanity...has impeded...Yet, there is hope.
and from the dawning of man...so...our own humanity...has impeded...Yet, there is hope.

      As mysterious as it is, we certainly cannot live without it, nor would we do well without it.

      You said so very much, and still so very much more to be said about the brain. You nailed it in "Could never fathom the enormity." Thanks for the push to think about this great creation by an Awesome Creator.

      The brain is so complex. It really is amazing how all those control centers act in the blink of an eye to motivate and maintain how we react, respond, and think as humans.

      Your sunrise photo is absolutely beautiful, whonu. You really captured a glorious moment.

      Oh, whonu, this poem is magnificent as to the amazing mystery of our brains! No man could ever recreate anything to compare and no computer anywhere can do what our brains are capable of doing ... Praise God! I have often ponder this very thing about our brains and every other part of our human bodies. They are certainly miracles in and of themselves.

      Up ++++ tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

      I think you are one of the best poets, if not the best poet, here on HP! And ... your photos are always stunning to His glory!

      God bless you, dear heart

      I so agree, that the comparison between the universe and the brain is clear to me!!!

      Great poem! There is some debate now as to whether the left/right functions of the brain are actually correct but the jury is out at the moment. I'm interested because of my former dyslexic students, whose brains don't necessarily follow the same circuits.

      Interesting stuff.

      I wrote this as a way of showing that the brain, its neurons and its Glia, when compared to the Universe...are so much (in their comparisons) alike when viewed.
