creation undone

and god saw every color
of the spectrum splaying
out through the shattered
firmament shining like jewels
scattered across the
jagged shards of creation
undone
god said now i know
the desire to destroy hovers
just behind the desire
to create
as these wounded heavens
are my witness i will never
again annihilate everything
i cannot shape and
mold and bend to my will
still i wonder
will humanity make
this covenant once the
waters recede
from the
earth?

(Genesis 9:12-17)

    …can humanity make such a covenant …. We seem able to make such a covenant, and do so on regular occasions. The difficulty comes in keeping it for long.

    to create, to destroy
    A word, a single gesture and either is so easily accomplished.
