a perfect Being with nothing to do.
Although Perfection’s flawless, it’s a curse –
eternally there would be nothing new.
In mindless mindfulness, ceaselessly still,
perchance a spark of inspiration lit
in God’s ineffably imposing will
to form the first dichotomies and split
the whole from part, the either from the or,
the dark from light, the evil from the good,
what was to be from what had come before
and enigmatic from what’s understood.
Reality emerged from the abstract
through this original creative act.
The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.
