Poem: "Inifinitesimal Divinities"

This poem came out of the December 3, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from Dreamwidth user Jjhunter.  It has been sponsored by lb_lee.  You can read more about the indriso form online.


Infinitesimal Divinities
-- an indriso


How many angels dance upon a pin?
How many iron atoms make a head?
Does God transcend the world, or dwell within?

A circle dance is held, but never led:
Each dancer's hand is clasped in its own spin,
A stranger charm than any priests have said.

Twixt science and religion, veils run thin,

And God holds every atom as they tread.
