Mist of Eden
You must login to vote
There stirs a frightened, primal beast,
whence ages first began,
whence Breath of God came first released
to stir the hearts of man.
Came Godly soul to earthy flesh
that something new be known,
whence both be blended into one
but neither overthrown.
Through Edenís mists to soulless flesh,
came life to conquer death,
that flesh be freed itís mortal chains
by Godís eternal breath.
There stands a man on Edenís ground,
his innocence anew,
his flesh and soul as sprouted seed
from which his spirit grew.
A Godly voice
though still and small,
sounds loud a higher call.
But comes a doubt
from flesh without,
with choice to rise or fall.
There wanders lost a bitter man
bereft the Godly voice,
now driven east of Edenís mists
now carnal in his choice.
Befallen low from heights beyond
what any man could tell,
he stands alone as one who knew
the distance which we fell.
But through his seed the Godly Breath
gives birth to Holy Word
till flesh of God be sacrificed,
whence grace of Christ be stirred.
1 Kings 19:12
