Ode to Plankton [sonnet]

A hidden green protects the world at large
far-distant oceans freshen air & land
life follows laws of chemistry & charge
the vast schematic intricately planned

from plankton oxygen is formed & freed
it flows into the atmosphere afresh
replenishing a hidden vital need
a factor requisite within the mesh

of myriad forms that constitute our world
a lok we share through cyclic birth & death
see how the mass of green is kindly curled
its amplitude sustaining human breath!

how widely spread life's wonderments of design?
on primal seas does Lord Naràyan recline!
