In a great heat


stir the nothingness

into boundless waves

to seed the multiverse:


Octave after octave

of radiance and light –

seven times seventy

explodes through the emptiness

with stars, planets, moons.


Life-forms rise and fall

across the infinitude,

and here and there

some find the path

to their effulgent source.


And those few tell their truth

in parable and allegory

hoping to teach others —

but most misunderstand

and instead create gods

forged in their own images.


Yet now and then

a smoldering ember

bursts into white flame

and Mother/Father smiles

as another shimmering soul

spirals home.
