Creation

On reflection of my life

I start here

Where I am now

 

According to the Bible,

If the creation story holds true

Which it will,

We can all trace our line

Back to the garden

To Adam and Eve

The first man and first woman

The only two never born

And these two are one

 

But further back

Before Eve

There was only Adam

Yet she was with him

A part of him

A rib, some say

 

So she was present

With him

Before she was

Taken from him

And made to appear

Separate from him

 

Before that

There was no Adam

Only the dust of the ground

Out of which the man was formed

And became a living soul

After receiving the breath of life

 

Before that there was light

 

Before that there was

Heaven and earth

And God who created them

What is seen and what is not

The form and the formless

The particle and the wave

And these two are one

 

And between the creation

Of heaven and earth

And the light

Was the spirit of God

She who was with him

In the beginning

Before the dividing time

 

Genesis 1:2

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Mother of All Living

She is the mother

Of all living

But has never been born

 

She is the source

Of everyone

Who has ever lived

 

We can all trace our line

Back to our mother

And our father

In the garden

These two are one

 

She is never without

Her master, her lord,

Her husband

Always by his side

There cannot be

One without the other

 

So that which has never been born

Has given birth to all living

But she has no life of her own

 

She takes on the form of all living

The form and the formless

She and her husband

 

Genesis 2:18

“…It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.”
