the second day of creation

then dark waters gushed forth
across the face of the deep god
drove back their raging and
destroyed the great sea monsters
leaving their remains to feed
the creatures that
scavenge the bottoms of
of the deep the tempest now
exploding god wrestled
the waters of chaos behind
the floodgates of the
heavens saying you may come
this far and no farther
here your surging
waves will
stop

god looked at the expanse
that separated the waters
below from the waters above
and called the expanse
sky
and there was evening
and there was morning
a second day

(Genesis 1:6-8, Psalm 74:13-14, Job 38:8-11)
