Potters mold it out of clay by cutter, roller, and wheel
Diversity is the upward inward curve of the vase
Created to hold flowers and keys and cane
Writers describe it by ink and quill
Diversity is symbolism, tone, diction of the piece
Created through Clacks! Pangs! Dings! of typewriter keys
Devout rejoice it as the creator’s love
Diversity is in the teachings of our maker
Smiling voices, by whispered prayers
Scientists identify it at a tip of a latex glove
Diversity is dashed along double helixes, genetically made
Connecting muscle to tendon to bone, synapses fired in brains
The mathematician charts it up to standard deviation
Diversity is the formula of the Fibonacci sequence
Steady patterned values, the ever so frequent
Cartographers map out the distance between destinations
Diversity is crossed hills and valleys, trodden sturdy
growth from the start to finish of journeys
The differences of definitions are not divisive
Throughout time, we are linked in adversity and in fortitude
All seven billion of us and our ideas of diversity, infinitely anew
