Darkness
Lifeless
But He Spoke.

LET THERE BE!

And it Begin...



Explosions in space
He smiled.
And He Spoke.
It is Good!

And He Rested



With special determination
He filled the empty water and land
With plants of all kinds.
It is Good!

It was Empty



Animals of every kind and shape
Large and small
Filled the emptiness.
It is Good!

And He Filled



Man was created,
Designed to commune
Directly with God.
It is Good!

All was Right



A Single bite
Destroyed the bond.
God and man, separated
It is Not Good!

The Bridge destroyed



Blessings and cursing
Man and woman toiled
But a plan is in action...
It is Not Good!

The Perfect Plan



A spotless lamb
Abraham chose
The plan revealed in Isaac
It Will be Good!

Such a cost!



Man's empty heart
Desperate for the fulfillment.
"Our deliverer, please!"
It Will be Good!

Hear our cries!



Time was split
The heavens opened
A new Life was born
It is Good!

Redemption had begun!



The Child grew
In wisdom and stature
A delight in His Father's eyes
It is Good!

The Plan Unfolding...



Heart fully embracing
The desolate world.
Determined to woo back
It is Good!

Redemption has Come!



Betrayed and abandoned
His heart pierced
The world refused Him.
It is Bad!

The Serpent won?



Three days and nights,
Hearts filled with dread
Despair paralyzes His love
All is Lost!

But Dawn Breaks



Heaven's light
Shattered the emptiness
He ascended to the throne
Hope has Won!

Filling the Emptiness

Creativity in its finest! Very well done-love the format.
Lollie Hofer 06/16/09
The format alone intrigued me, I've never seen it done like this before. The story, unfolding from beginning to end, was well-written. I enjoyed this prose/poem a lot.
Sonya Leigh06/17/09
Oh, I so enjoyed reading this as it was and then playing around with different ways of reading it. First, I read the poetry alone, on the left...that was great, standing alone. Then, I read "God's words" along with the response...the sparseness of that was just fantastic!

And that's what's so wonderful about writing something like this; it draws the reader in, inviting him to interact with it. Good job!
Sara Harricharan 06/17/09
oooh, very nicely done! Super creative and with great meaning. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful piece. I'm glad I didn't miss it. ^_^
