creation haikus

by melonbar92

a series of haikus on creation (written last year may during my month in the downtown eastside):

the universe quilt
hand stitched by God. the first patch
was light, dark, day, night

the second was sky
waves of water sewn beneath
a vastness of blue!

the waters were joined
into sea. He lined it with
the fabric of earth

the third patch brought plants
intricate patterns of green
bearing seeds and fruit

then He stitched two lights
poised over threads of sea life
and creatures galore

then with steadiness
He sewed His own reflection
in the form of man

His quilt was complete
in rest He looked on His work
and said, “it is good”
