Snippet #2: Yaweh

This is an old poem I wrote back in 2009. Hope you enjoy this snippet.

 

+Yaweh+

 

His eyes cast shadows off the trees;

Like light through a broken jar,

Fragmented into streams of gleaming

Molecules touching the surface,

Canopying the ocean deep with

Colors never before seen;

Bursting the atoms down the middle.

 

Atlantis quakes, for the sound of his voice

Splinters the earth and tremors the seas

Like the footsteps of a giant, bending his

Bow for the kill whose patient calloused hands

Are rewarded only by the snow

Collected on his skin and the numerous creatures

That greet his immovable posture with a piercing

Gaze.

 

And there He stands.

A mammoth tower of gold stuck forever with

Swords; a fiery spire, climbing endlessly into

Infinity.
