Let There Be Light

Earth Beyond
 
Let there be Light
 
Dead into life empty into full hell into heaven nightmares into dreams
Grains of sand into towers of mountains into galaxies depths of ocean trenches
Formless unknown unknown darkness of the universe beyond the clouds
The beginning of life breathing carving moments into the edges of eternity
 
The vastness of the unfathomable vortices spiraling in lightyear velocities
 
From darkness it all started with a spark of light the minutest nanosecond
Of time coalesced with other undefined unseen elements through eons of odes
Of poetry Olympus gods goddesses of spilled blood and of nature in full splendor
Now stood like a thousand peacock’s wings spread before the rays of our rising sun
 
Earth our home beloved abode of our birth our dreams our soul’s shelter cave
 
Out of the sea we emerged dry the salt deep into our psyche under the scorching sun
Upright we breathed the air we never knew filled our gills with air sacs of oxygen
Earth’s life supporting gift as we rummage curiously through the lush virgin land
Colossus fern forests primal foliage the beginnings of the paradise that would be our home
 
Crawl into erect four legged into two dorsals to wings all flew in out of the shelter cave
 
From the darkness of the rock refuge the spark of light now a flaming torch
Ignited a dream a love a feeling a need for companionship a brotherhood
Breathing creatures we are from stupor awoke roamed the deep black forests
Joined the nascent existence in a renewed hunt for food extend life pollinate
 
Pollinate we did seven billion times billions more only from yesterday
 
Dead into life on we breathe on we fly rockets into the black matter beyond the clouds
Geared anew we join the neo-voyagers in the hunt for other life shelters far far away
In the vortices of space beyond in the darkness unknown we know awaits The Light
The Spark “Let there be Light” that started it all upon us from the Genesis revealed

Earth one of the four elements of the Universe (western culture). There is the element "Fire" in this poem related to the context. I will write more on "Fire" to complete the Four. Air and Water are the other two that's been written. Interesting musings I am sharing.

It's like a 140-character tweet about life events on Earth, a footnote if that. Thanks Robert for enjoying.

The Earth is stable and reliable, yet constantly working and moving. Those with the Earth element share these traits. You are practical and logical and stand firm in your convictions. You learn through experience, which is never difficult for a curious person like yourself. You aren't interested in unrealistic dreams, but rather you believe in setting achievable goals that are attained through hard work.

You are an artist and love to create. Your home is welcoming and warm and always open to friends and family, which is fitting considering you're a bit of a homebody. While you are always friendly, you do not let people into the inner circle easily. However, once you do, you are loyal to a fault. On the opposite side of this, you can sometimes be overprotective. As it is impossible to stop the world from turning, it is also impossible to change your mind once it has been made up. You are stubborn and bull-headed and will often stick to your position for no other reason than it is your position. In relationships, you are empathetic and nurturing and don't mind waiting out a few rough patches. But be careful, this also makes it easy for others to walk all over you.

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

Simply epic. A gorgeous poem. I like!
