At the Beginning – John W. Leys

earth-1149733_1920.jpg

Void

Nihil, nothing

Darkness, density

Infinite eternity.

 

Expansion, explosions

Unbridled light.

Chaos, creation

Dragons and demons,

Fire and ice.

Mother Earth;

Father Sky

Split, divided

The world made right.

 

Monsters slaughtered;

Mountains carved

From their thighs.

 

Organized, categorized

Order imposed.

The future lies

There in the garden

Where the two trees grow.
