Genesis, Part 1: Creation And Division

In the countless depths of teeming
     chaos,
where lay the substance of dark
     creation
before the hours of dawn’s breaking,
there moved the expanse of Soul,
the Spirit from which all was sprung,
upon the darkness of writhing chaos,
and in that state of primeval dwelling,
the chaos below, the Spirit above,
the chord was struck for the
     intertwining
as the Spirit moved upon the darkness,
those depths that swirl in cyclic abyss,
and Spirit, formless, and chaos, never
     formed,
dwelt together to balance in form
the non-division of all creation.
And so was formed from the marriage
of abyssmal swirling and expansive
     flight
the meeting ground of solid foundation,
the firmament above the below, below
     the above,
the place of dwelling and of creation,
where dwelt the children of swirling and
     flight.
And it came to be, where the children
     dwell,
that unequal measure of substance
     was formed
and division came to the solid
     foundation
of expanse and swirling, and creation
     was split.
Between mother and father, division
     was struck
and to the children, in each of them,
in each child, each one to his kind,
there was given unequal measure
of the flight of expanse or swirl of
     abyss.
And from this division upon firm
     foundation
that which was solid was torn asunder.
And then there arose in this divided
     land
the want for keeping each to their own.
The tribes of the children of expanse
     and abyss
were remade in the likeness of the
     measure taken
by each of the children, from mother or
     father,
and the children drew nearer to those
     of their kind,
those of like measure, and the division
     was sealed.
