milkyway

void
devoid even of emptiness
heaviness of nothingness
one complete
mystically replete with life
the Voice sounds
choice made

BEGINNINGS

watery depths
first breath
fiery earth
everything in motion
no emotion
commotion
promotion of life

CREATION

hesitant band
from water to land
then stand
stalk the flock
hawk flies the sky
figures walk
eventually talk

MATURATION

humans grown
humans groan
creation moans
tone of the Voice changes
people speak
act
choices made bleak

REVOLUTION

break in wake of revolt
all is at stake
forsaken
creation shaken
one is taken
live to die
die to live

SALVATION



Note: Thank you, again, to Tanya Cliff for inspiring me to try my hand at this type of poetry, which I (we?) are tentatively calling “vers l’avant,” which means “forward verse,” and is so named because it is a progressive-sectional kind of free verse. Hope you enjoy!
