You Spoke

There was darkness
and nothing more
You spoke
and light came forth
(Who says You cant light up my momentary sadness?)

There was water
no land, no soil that gather
You spoke
divided, the waters broke
(Who says You can't gather the waters one one side
and let me cross the continents on low tide?)

There was no green, no grass
no vegetation. no patch
You spoke
and the leaves sprouted forth
(Who says someday there will no longer be food on display?)

The sky was empty
no sun, no moon, no stars in the heavenly
You spoke
the sun showed and the moon overtook
(Who says they can't be together to amuse me with a soulful rigodon?)

The waters were deep
void, black and no creatures creeped
You spoke
on the ocean beds, the sea animals nooked
(Who says the oceans do nothing but divide?)

And the earth was barren
no single thing was roaming
You spoke
and the earth was filled with noisy bleating
(Who says the world can never again be silenced?)

There was no image of You
no one to dominate the flock
You spoke
from the filth broke-

And out of Adam 
she came
and offsprings they bore
generation to generation
I came forth

and I ask
Who is God?
What is God like?

You spoke
and silence overtook
