The Second Day – Genesis 1:6-8
Posted by Tyler Kirkpatrick | June 30, 2020
I was recently inspired to write a poem for each day of creation–(which are written as poems themselves). I will be posting a new entry each day. Today: Genesis 1:6-8.
The Second Day
Raindrops drizzle and dance upon the surface of the lake In their playful prancing they are becoming a part of the surface upon which they dance
Sidewalks steam in the streaming sunlight ethereal evaporation the returning-- transformed and having transformed for rain and snow do not return without nourishing, conceiving, bringing forth life; in their becoming they beget the becoming of the world
Sky above and sea below Separated but not separate "Neither movement from nor towards, neither ascent nor decline... there is only the dance" In the dance the becoming In the becoming the transforming In the transforming the returning A symbiotic cycle made possible Only by the separating. The Second Day.
 From T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets
