Without looking within

In the sea of  swirling dust that is our infinity
Held together by the breath of Divinity
Infinitesimal microdots are we
Yet megalomania rules our see.

Do ants blindly view themselves as lords of their world
In their intricately marshalled social whirl?
Does the Higgs Boson,if it exists,
Boast worlds invisible to our questing wits?

Majestic laws govern our creation
With life's jigsaw of interconnection
Which mere accident cannot explain
In the welter of our cosmic pain.

Marooned on a piece of grit
We fondly believe that this is it.
We can solve the mystery of our fate
As Dawkins and Hawking blithely state

Improve our instruments to deeper fathom
Into the once indivisible atom
Enhance our telescopes to peer further into space
Life's mystery aye  remains to bewilder our gaze.

It is in our DNA  always to explore
But no matter how deep nor how far
Our scientific knowledge we advance
Life's mystery aye  leads us a merry dance

Yet we must to our nature be true
In trying to find a clear  way through
So that we stand proud,tall and justified
But we still remain small and mystified.

Relative is time,the conjuror,
With its tricks of smoke and mirror
In a world that seems so solid
While shimmer its particles pellucid.
Our senses  feel that they truly see 
But we cannot  know reality.

    A very perceptive and searching write. We look ever deeper outward and inward, but (clever though all this might be) we seem to get further away from God, somehow.
