November 8, 1995


and God spoke




(the word broke the darkness with the sound of a thousand thunders

trembling with power

instantly working His will)


and the darkness shattered

into a billion blazing bits of brightness

mighty galaxies and countless brilliant stars

(merest echoes of their Creator's glory),

soundlessly burst into being with a thunder of light,

begin their trundling way across an infant infinity

and from that day forth

proclaimed their maker's praise


And God Spoke
