“Let there be Light” and the words echoed.
Across the vast; brilliance spread
In swathes and streams and sparkles
And the world awaited in anxious hush.
Then, in living visions,
The world came to be.
Good and innocent, the novel creation
Ambled in happy contentment,
With no wrinkles, cracks, or fissures
To upset the silky existence.
But, alas! The world did not stay still
And the darkness crept in with fangs bared.
The serpent hissed, “Eat the fruit”,
And promised Divine knowledge.
The woman obliged and
Evil seeped into the world and marked the doom.
Iniquity entered with the knowledge of the fruit
And the serpent chortled with glee.
Summer sped from the land;
Hail and lightning thundered across
And the ravenous lion eyed the lamb.
The woman fled in shame
Which chased the fruits of her womb,
Now bound, to destiny’s doom.
But, the Word was pronounced
And the Word made flesh ;
The promise.was the fruit of the Womb!
But amidst the evil, rose the crossed tree
To redeem the perished with the promise
Of the fruit of the Womb.
The Lamb of God hung on the cross
To rise in splendor and glory.
The light shone again upon the world
And the woman’s offspring was unbound.
I really like this… thank you.
Thank you. It was inspired by our sessions on the gospel of St. John.
