Let there be light

A beginning of nothingness,

then an explosion of potential,

atoms and molecules

colour, shape, structure and texture,

light and dark,

water, gases, matter.

chaotically mingled

experimentally ordering

into an as yet undreamed of reality.


Gradually pattern emerges;

forms take shape,

intertwined and interdependent.

And God saw that it was good.
