The Cosmos in a Cosmos

Cosmos bipinnatus, commonly called the garden cosmos or Mexican aster. And it's in my front yard!
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
Not to get all Carl Sagan on you, but with so many heated discussions pro and con 
about intelligent design, I'm taking a moment to think of Artistic Design. 
Here is the last verse of Blake's poem.
God appears, and God is light,
To those poor souls who dwell in night;
But does a human form display
To those who dwell in realms of day. 
Here is the entirety of William Blake's poem, remember, he is considered a mystic.
I see him as a caring person with a heart for the poor.
William Blake - Auguries of Innocence
