The Creation (7 of 8)


Young man – your arms too short to box with God.
An Invisible Hand transversed time’s flow
and made a world to cure his loneliness.
A thousand worlds. But that was not enough.
There was a need to correspond, to speak,
to apprehend what thoughts the space contained
his hands had wrought. So God created man.
From dust and clay he shaped the human form,
then breathed into his mouth the breath of life.
And man became what God intended him
to be, a maker of his own image.
Then plants grew near him, symbiotically,
providing food and warmth – to each – in turn.
And man became a living soul. Amen.
