Beauty Before Sustenance - Poem by Mike Adam

Before the bang began
This teeming round of
Doing, non-doing

Was quiet and calm
The eternal mind.

Begun before the calm
Cooled down seared
Heat white light

Ineffable rounds
Of critical mass
Formed, re-formed


And left to grow
Expand and seed
The million different things.

And in this that
Calm remained,
Retained the sense

Of beauty

Hungered, ragged
The sublime still yet

Pre-bang mind

To sorry circumstance
I shall not yield
This freedom deep inside
