Boundaries broken
In a wave of warm salt
The first word is spoken
And in wonder and revolt
A world awakens, stretching
To feel a forest growing on its crust
On land given up by a heavy sea, retching.
Then wonder as feet touch the newly formed dust
Under a new born sun and scar flecked moon
Where the land and sea meets
Birds take to flight and animals roam, all to soon
Their heartbeats build to a thousand beats
A crescendo of voices, bird and beast, fill the air
Living, protected in a shell, a flimsy case
They float along on a globe of wonder, so rare
A life-raft in the cold, dark, void of space.
