genesis

R.S. Wesson

Original Art – R.S. Wesson


at the beginning
there was a blank sheet,
and in the darkness
creation was held in place
before the sparks and ember glows
set their marks in the distance.

a sound arose from the corners
of the universe
and echoed
with a sun’s laugh of approval

while luminous seeds flew from a nova,
floating outward
in waves of solar mirth,
and left an imprint of light and sound
set with the hand that created it.

**************
Genesis is an ekphrastic poem, inspired by the artwork shown above, by R. S. Wesson.
