And the winner of the DNA haiku contest is dpasquantonio, for this beautiful thought:
A spiral staircase
Each step makes you what you are
But not who you are
Congratulations to all who entered! Entries ranged from the spiritual --
"Almighty spell check
Copy and paste for children
Hidden file stores soul" (zakafury)
.... to the forensic
"Broken glass from crime
A drop of blood left behind
Genetic mugshot" (leopardlabcoat)
.... to the opinionated
Is going to tell us more
Than from genes alone (What-if)
... to the deeply personal.
"Gassy, smelly farts
So rich to the nose
Dad, I hate your DNA" (Boomerski)
Have a wonderful weekend, all you beautiful snowflakes.
