And the word was

dulcimer strings“And the word was” by Sharon Rauenzahn

In the beginning, God spoke a word
And the word was love
And the word was power
And the word echoed
Still echoes
Vibrating the eternal strings of chaos
The strings of order
Of order into chaos and back again

If we could tune our ears to the deep invisible bellow
Of the cosmic microwave background radiation
Would we pick out that word?
We look backwards toward Creation
Listening to darkness
Looking at sound
The first bell and the last trumpet together
In infinite ring

Let there be light!
And there was light
And it was good
And the light is power
And the light is love
Word without end
