Do You Recognize This Poem?

I found this in an file, dated 4/2014, along with a lot of potential edits, the full text Genesis: I 1-27, and A LOT of notes on those passages.  I have no memory of the how and the why, if I wrote this or I was just playing around with someone else’s stuff, but it sure looks like I was toying with trying to turn the creation myth into a love poem.  I’m feeling pretty old, finding something I’m not sure that I wrote or not. A google search doesn’t cause me to suspect it isn’t mine, but….anyone recognize it?

In The Beginning

move as a wind the heavens and the earth
set fires in the dome of the sky
to give light upon the earth
to gather together formless void and darkness:
morning, the second day
beneath the ark of the mists called Sky
yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind is flying creeping

make it good if there was light, make it you
fruitful and multiplying
the image of you.


About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
