Poem: "The God Particle"

This poem came out of the December 3, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from siliconshaman.  This also fills the "experiment" square in my 11-26-13 card for the Origfic Bingo fest.  It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette.  You can read more about the Higgs boson online.

The God Particle

The Higgs boson
is a small, temporary speck
with large, permanent implications.

It opens up whole new areas of physics
for active testing, so as to create
a better understanding of the Universe.

Physicists spent forty years of experiments
searching for the Higgs boson
in a wilderness of other particles,
and finally found it in a Large Hadron Collider.

They don't think of it as a personality to be met
but as an object to be investigated.
The similarities still remain.

This is a torch that lights the way --
and after all, isn't that what gods are for?

Thank you!

I like looking for parallels between science and spirituality.
