We don’t see the atoms…. but they are there… Here is a poem by Rumi about atoms.
Poem of the Atoms by Rumi
O’ day, arise!
shine your light, the atoms are dancing
Thanks to Him the universe is dancing,
overcome with ecstasy, free from body and mind
I’ll whisper in your ear where their dance is leading them.
All the atoms in the air and in the desert are dancing,
puzzled and drunken to the ray of light,
they seem insane.
All these atoms are not so different than we are,
happy or miserable,
perplexed and bewildered
We are all beings in the ray of LIGHT from The Beloved,
nothing can be said.
