[a poem by R.D. Stone]
The story of how it began
everything in celestial space
raw, hot and clustered, out of the hands
that rewrite the breath
bubbling up, pouring forth,
the eyes of lightning flashed
as thunder rolled, bulged and spat
fire and sparks, the galaxies expand.
Bendings shaped from dust
bright-blue elements blowing
through the universe who made us
from mighty power spreads the flowing
with a rise to rule the days,
wondrous beginning of newness birthing,
the ordained cosmos would obey.
Bursting, formed by the word
to reveal power and vision
shown through vapors of new worlds
hour by hour with enchanted precision
every expanding voice
in the universe flared up
and planets would rejoice
as the miracle took flight
delivering everything in life’s cup.
And it was said: come forth! forth!
spangle into flight
thought of thoughts
emit darkness into light!
And from the girth
to all corners of the night
the birth of effervesce
creation appeared and uncurling
the spontaneous exhale
came the surge with brilliant unfurling
and the gathering ethereal praise
came a bursting forth to share its ways.
