Day nineteen – and then there was light!

A creation myth inspired by the film ‘Allegro non Troppo’ – evolution from a coke can.  I have finally caught up again, yay!

 

And so it began.
A dim light
under the door
illuminating
a forgotten can –
drip, drip,
slowly dripping
damp into plush.

A stray beam
of slatted sunlight
crawled over the carpet,
conjuring a faint
wisp of steam.

Drips slowed,
steam rose,
time passed,
the world turned.

Wars raged,
people died,
wood rotted,
walls fell,
then all lay silent.

One night, moonlight,
cut wordlessly through
the mossed carpet.
Suddenly,
where no one
was left to see,
a faint hiss,
a vague undulation
of the soupy mass
heralded new life,
the miracle of creation.
