A SEASON OF SEASONING

The Great Spirit, the First Mover, The Creator expresses an intention and that expression in the midst of eternal nothingness begins being. The expression explodes into infintessimal sparks and particles hurtling through the universe in all directions.

One particular spark of virgin celestial light spirals through the vast expance of the silent dark universe lighting the way for nine gravity bound particles that follow in a rhythmic dance of eliptical circlings, each in its own annual journey about the great light. The third particle out is pregnant earth in its ideal path, swaying to and frow, sustaining basic cycles and seasons of life. Apoapsis to periapsis, circling and spinning, all four seasons occurring simultaneously somewhere on the earth at all times. All the while cycles occur in the ebb and flow for the creatures caught up unsuspecting in the intentional web of life: vapor to rain in a cyclic watering of the earth; night and day, lunar rotations and tidal flows; migrations north and south; living creatures rhythmically moving to the call of the seasons and inner call to trace the paths of libation and sustenance, mangers of mating, birthing, maturing, dying to replenish and sustain life on mother earth. Thus begins a season of seasoning for the earth in preparation for giving birth to intentions yet to come.

Wow! Nice "seasoning"-- nice word painting, but it nearly flew over my head. Upon closer examination, I appreciated the beautiful brush strokes, use of "word color" and the story presented. Nicely painted.

Wow! i like this. i thought from the titile that you were going to talk about herbs and spices so the universe and planets was an unexpected delight

Creative use of the idea of seasoning & an interesting sprinkling of scientific terms. A couple of misspellings are "expanse" & "to and fro."

This felt like it could have been a poem. The words you used were powerful, but the format didn't do them justice. Keep writing and trying different styles and genres. I can feel your passion.

This is beautiful with lots of imagery. It would show so much better if you'd write it in lines of free verse, for it truly is poetic.

I enjoyed this. Beautifully described; it's exactly how I see creation. Well done.
diana kay01/27/11

I agree with Shann and Verna. As I was reading, I pictured it as free verse.
Your word picture begs to be written as poetry. Great job.
