Once Upon a Time, Before Time

Once Upon a Time, Before Time

Once upon a time,
Before anything at all had ever existed,
Except God,
Even before Time,

God began talking to Himself,
To while away the time,
In a voice of many waters.
There was no one to answer,
But God is very patient.

The emptiness of non-being
Was so echoey,
That the choruses of voices
In morphic resonance;
Became a multitude and host.

The voices began asking,
“Who am I,”
“Where are you?”

But the Lord of Hosts, God, answered,
In a still, small voice, and said,
“Be still, and know that I am God.”

And so,
They became still,
And knew that they were God,
And began talking to themselves,
Once upon a time,
Before Time,
To while away the time.

And so they became worlds,
Worlds within world,
World without end.
