He stood upon the rim of creation, and looked out upon the work of his hands.
At first there was chaos in the swirl of time's flow, the view clouded with the end result overlaid. Words were uttered and light reached out from the depths of his being to fill the emptiness of the void, bringing order to his artful vision.
With a touch, he separated the airs about him, parting the waters to the utmost foundations. There he placed Leviathan, and covered it with a date for its awakening. In the center of his world he placed the consuming fire, and sealed it for judgement yet to come
Then, reaching out to the far ends of space, he cast the stars in motion, giving them their guided paths to tell the tale. Each constellation he named from that day, to be as signs throughout history yet to come.
In this new light he labored in planting, growing a garden in his delight. Trees in plenty, for food to eat and shade for the weary. Tall towers in forest so vast, and carpets of color with flowers blooming unnumbered-- except by him, each one.
He spoke to the Earth and animals came forth, cattle in the fields and birds to fill the sky. To the waters he called and brought abundance, and to the ground the creatures that crawl. The trees were filled with their singing, and the air rang with praise in a language he alone understood.
From the dust he formed his greatest delight. The vision of its end overlaid its beginning, and with a tear he breathed into it -- life.
There He stood, upon the rim of creation, and looked out on the work of his hands. As HIS blood drops painted the sunset sky, he wept for the pain of its beauty.
