To Ponder

Have you ever wondered at how
‘to ponder’ means to think about deeply, to consider carefully
and ponderous means very boring or dull,
or slow and awkward because of weight and size
but ‘to wonder’ means to think about something with curiosity
and wondrous means very beautiful or impressive-causing wonder.
Do we associate deep, thoughtfulness with dullness
and curiosity with beauty and interesting things?
Is not the former just as important
in the creation of the many wonders of the world?

    Such a thought worth pondering upon. And I completely agree with this line,

    Is not the former just as important in the creation of the many wonders of the world?

    …it is in deep contemplation of endless questions that we make wonders- be it in science or art. Great piece!
