A Kind of Dancing Divinity

God beyond us, Evolutionary Mystery,
sages in the ancient past have discerned in you
a kind of dancing divinity
to celebrate an indefinable and supreme divine liveliness.
Today scientists imagine your microcosmic world
as made up of vibrational reality
that gives shape to all physical reality.
We rejoice in each dancing strand of energy and music,
and for all prophetic theology
casting metaphors of light on your holy face.
Whatever you are, Spirit God,
we give reverence and worship.
To do so seems an important part of our peculiar role
in this magnificently mysterious drama.
May it be so.

– William Cleary
(From the book Prayers to An Evolutionary God)
