Today We Rest

Creating it all
Heaven above, the earth below
On Day seven we rest

High fives all around
What we did is amazing
Miracle of life

We watch from above
Colors now fill in the void
Love will rule it all

Our eternal love
A love that will never die
Shared with everyone

The heavens and the earth are complete, not bad for only six days of work.  It is good that we finally did something with that empty space, that great expanse was such a waste, this sky we made is full of beautiful wonders.  There was just too much water and it needed to be separated from the great expanse.  That was the best idea ever, to call the dry land “earth,” and calling the gathering of waters the “seas”.  With the water grouped into sections, the earth is capable of producing vegetation with seed-bearing plants and trees that bear fruit.  Who would have thought that we would be able to separate light from darkness, but we made light to preside over the day and there will be night when the light is gone.  Every beast of the earth that moves or crawls along the ground and every bird of the air and everything that breathes and every plant will have food to sustain them.

Our greatest achievement, made in our own image, they will be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, so they can rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that crawls upon the earth.  And now it is so, and all we can do is hope that it lasts.  Will man be grateful for all that we have given them?  Will they be kind to the planet and all the creatures that inhabit it?  Will they refrain from sin, and even though we know everything, because of the free will that we gave them, who knows?  We have done our best and it is their thoughts, deeds and creations that will significantly shape their planet from now on and if things get really bad we could always flood the earth and drown everybody and start again.

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, July 17th 2019, eternal love.
