for Duane Elgin

  The Cosmos is the universe conceived
  As orderly, coherent and alive,
  Which is a concept formerly believed
  That some today are aiming to revive.

  Despite materialists who apprehend
  A world reduced to mass and energy,
  Inspired cosmologists will yet contend
  That Spirit gives it all vivacity,

  That consciousness comes first, intelligence
  Informing all that manifests as real,
  For how could merely matter summon sense
  Or all this vital panoply reveal?

       Though Newton taught us how to calculate,
       There’s more displayed to those who meditate.
