After Eden

December 13, 2017

Where are the days
especially the six
that gave us light and dark
that we might lose sight
only to see
the waters divide
above and here
to split
and birth
all manner of green
and growth
that we
not yet
might eat
of our work
and measure time
by planets moon
and sun stars blinding
as fish and fowl
took to swim and flight
in fear of all
to come upon land
four legged and more
watching waiting
for the one of two
and arms
who moved to that next day
empty of all
but time and god
and woman too
