Then there was the time
when the earth was as mud
with mud huts and benches
and plumes of mud going into the ground.

Simple trees of evergreen
placed on the bench
arranged and formed

Water waves in a far off place
the other side of here
Beyond the new formed mountains
with bolts in the Sky.

Then there I flew
up off the surface
beyond the place you worked
and smiled as I went.

Into the sky
amidst the stars
they soared on by
returning me to the center
of it all.

Just you and I
before everyone else
before everything
together in the making.
