Bible Verses

And God said “Let there be light.”

And there was light.

And God divided the light from the darkness.

 

But God didn’t make the darkness,

it was there as soon as the light was.

Light and darkness came with speaking.

 

Well, God was staring out over the roofs

or where the roofs would be

but it was that time of day when you can’t see, only hear.

So God made his comment

to anyone who might be in earshot

and the light and darkness came over the roofs.

Then God shut his eyes

and the light outside was divided from the darkness within

but it was the kind of darkness that,

from now on, would always be beaten upon.

God sighed,

took a last few sips from his canteen.

He wished someone could help him name these clear, clear things.
