The Incarnation


And God said,
"Light!"
"Sky!"
"Land!"
"Vegitate!"
"Proliferate!"
"Free Will!"
Creation teemed.
Preexistent, the unspoken word is Love.

Past tense.
He speaks, but only afterward
do we know Creation.
He is too Awesome
for our present tense,
present with the Presence,
oxymora.

Past tense.
What ear could hear?
"Fission!"
"Fusion!"
"Energize!"
The unspoken word is Love.

Before He spoke,
Love.
Why speak?
Love.

Personified,
two hands two feet,
one heart like mine,
for Love, present tense.

Communion,
Intimacy.

The present tense
Incarnation,
the Spoken Word,
God is Love.

Yes welcome to Passions, that was an interesting view on Genesis. I liked
the playing with time (if that makes sense?),
"Past tense.
He speaks, but only afterward
do we know Creation.
He is too Awesome
for our present tense,
present with the Presence,
oxymora."
really enjoyed this one, great poem, look forward to reading your next posting.
