Once Upon a Poem…

Once Upon a Poem

The silence was so LOUD
that it BURST.

Thousands, millions of LIGHTS
broke from within the darkness.

Flashes could be seen
EVERYWHERE…
thunderous roars, explosions
cascaded across
what was PURE NOTHINGNESS

and NO ONE saw this

UNTIL a single BREATH
could be heard in the chaos.

The moment became STILL
as if ATTEMPTING to
grasp what pursed
all the MOTION.

Suddenly, the BREATH
began to INHALE
and stars splashed throughout space…
then an EXHALE evolved
spreading galaxies beyond galaxies…
Universes erupted
AND then a WORD was SPOKEN…

An unknown voice
echoed, ‘GOOD.’

In unison
all THINGS coming
together APPEARED as
if they were clapping
HANDS.

The hands ‘scooped’
all that was
and BEGAN to
form seas, lands, mountains,
deserts—animals, fish, birds,
insects…
unexplored DEPTHS—
so much MYSTERY
fashioning itself
well BEYOND the understanding
of DAYS…

again, ‘GOOD‘ was heard—

and then the Unknown
spewed its breath into
the dust—

ENDLESS particles
took form
creating the very
likeness of the
Unknowing ONE

AND

HUMANKIND
was born.

All things created
were GOOD

Once upon a poem.
