Origins

God

spoke, a big bang.

Atoms sprang, electrons emerging

from sound. Holding the strings, reverberating,

composing a timeless piece,

writing melodies

of life.

But little

He had to say and so came

silence. The universe expands, in effervescence.

He is kept waiting for a reply,

waiting for signs

of life.

Give grace

and let things come as they

may, on a lonely blue planet floating in space.

Molecules of the primordial soup

in a fray, for a coup

of life.

It is from

pure chance, really, that

random reactions soon made fishes and plants.

Creatures with unique features,

within the circle

of life.

Then came

Man, part of God’s great Plan?

Or were the Gods man-made? Faith starts to fade.

In questioning, they began to see,

much clearly: origins

of life.
