And the earth was without form,
(Unorganized, shapeless, chaotic, crude
Actually it was quite rough and rude)
and void; (useless,unoccupied, empty,
Nothing meaningful for any to see)
(Ruled, all robed in black, did creep
All around and) was upon the face of the deep.
And Abimelech said,
(Many years later while on earth he tread,)
“I wot not who hath done this thing: neither didst thou tell me,
neither yet heard I of it, but to day.”
According to NaPoWriMo’s Day 14 Prompt: Grab a book that is nearest to you. Start the poem with the second sentence in the book and then add the 15th sentence from page 24 somewhere else in the poem
So the book nearest to me at the time was my bible and so this poem Is based on:
Genesis 1:2 and Genesis 21:26
The words in parentheses are mine, the others are from the Bible and are italicized.
It’s kind of interesting how these two sentences fit together. 😊
