Spool Five


The challenge for today was to write a poem that starts with a command. In the spirit of Easter, I decided to try write a poem that started with the famous command from Genesis.

Let there be light
at the root
and darkness
at the flower
and a rainbow
at the end of the rainbow

Let there be silence
at the festivals
and cacophony
at the funeral
and a ringing
and the end of the ringing

Let there be digging
at the center of Earth
and building
at the center of Earth
and a universe
at the end of the universe

Let there be laughing
at the sound of water
and crying
at the sight of rain
and a chuckle
at the end of the chuckle

Let there be nothing
at the beginning of everything
and everything
at the crest of a wave
and light
at the end of the tunnel
