The Beloved speaks
and summons the earth into being.
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the sound of the sun’s power rises before the silence of the Night.
Fires crackle. Waters rush. Wind blows. Earth splits open.
Creation thrives a day at a time.
Each bird is known.
Each beast is named.
Each plant has an angel.
No tree or hillside can be bought or sold
for the Creator ~ the Word become Flesh ~
made fish, fowl, All that Is,
from the rising of the sun to its setting.
