I wonder. Do you ever wonder?

Raindrops on grass

I Wonder

I wonder…
Why bubbles are round
Like clear floating soccer balls.
Why do they burst?
Why do they form at all?
I watch it as it floats away…

Don’t you lose your sense of wonder
Never stop asking why
Let your imagination wander
Let your imagination fly

I wonder…
What is fire?
It has no substance
As it grows taller
And joyfully dances
Until it turns its energy source
To ashes.

Don’t you lose your sense of wonder
Never stop asking why
Let your imagination wander
Let your imagination fly

Why can’t we breathe oxygen in water?
Why is each of the prints on our thumbs
Different?
Do you wonder why we wonder?
Where does our curiosity come from?

Don’t you lose your sense of wonder
Never stop asking why
Let your imagination wander
Let your imagination fly


Do you ever wonder why things are the way that they are? Sometimes I get too curious. And that is what inspired this idea – a new series in which I find answers to questions that most people probably never thought to ask. 🙂 Sometimes they explore how God’s wonderful world works, and sometimes curiosity tries to kill the cat lady on other man-made things or word origins. And as an added bonus – I get to practice my essay writing skills. 🙂 Stay tuned for Wonder Wednesdays – it may not be every Wednesday, but hopefully at least every other Wednesday! ❤

(If you are seeing this twice, I apologize – somehow when I posted it, WordPress posted it in the past, on June 7th. XD I have no idea how that happened – I didn’t schedule it, I clicked “publish” – but it has happened before and it looks like I need to keep a better eye on it so I don’t have to move the posting date back to present day.  😅)

  1. God gave us an imagination for a reason. Do you wonder what kind of imagination He has? Just look around at His AMAZING creation! We just have to remember to ask Him to help us use our imagination for Him. We can even use it when we are reading the Bible. A couple of weeks ago, when I was studying the story of Paul and Silas in prison, I began to wonder how Paul knew that the jailer was going to kill himself if he was in the inner prison and had to call out in a loud voice and the jailer had to call for lights?
    Lovely poem! 🙂
