An Ode to the Galaxy


In the beginning, it all began,

Separating the waters from the waters,

Chance borne to a single spherical plane,

All according to the Great Plan.


Darkness engulfed the expanse,

Awash in jeweled prisms,

Revolutions of lifeless cosmos,

A single orb brimming with chance.


But Creation wreaked havoc on the Created,

Extermination of Nature for Man,

Progression terraformed atrophy,

As predestination fated.


Yet hope fell from the heavenly throne,

A single drop of celestial advent,

Mending barren wastelands to lush wilderness,

For no longer shall the Earth groan.

In light of my Camp Nano graphic novel, I decided to keep to the theme of my Natural Man project… without actually writing anything for the project until July. *feels the story bubbling*
