The point of creation

No lie
no metaphor

to talk of clay
to talk of ash
we are particles
of debris

we rise up
from the earth
with one sole
that is
to love
to make
of our lives
comes naturally
as nature is

out of the loam

our bones
our skin
a cosmic fabric
oxygen carbon
the building blocks
of life

on your lips

a taste
of the universe
of us all
our atoms born
a breath away
from the point
of creation

John Lyons
