A once world

A once world
without air
without water
without light
without love
without a ghost
of affection
without a dream
or a song
dayless and
skyless

A once world
incipient
in the cosmos
an expectation
an oceanic silence
without words
without gestures
birth awaiting birth
life awaiting life
a deep darkness
awaiting the star
of Bethlehem

John Lyons
