I felt it like Creation


I felt it like a rumble
That tumbled
And cracked and split
An earthquake
That was earth shattering
And soul trembling
I felt it like an explosion
Hot lava
Over my skin
A volcano
All consuming
That heated my soul within
I felt it blow me over
Left me quivering
Like a leaf alone in the wind
A hurricane
Causing destruction
To be repaired once again
I felt it like creation
That marked the beginning of time
Time stopped and restarted
Never ended
The pleasure of this story
I tell you, is mine.

There! little girl; don't cry!
