R.S. Wesson

Original Art – R.S. Wesson

at the beginning
there was a blank sheet,
and in the darkness
creation was held in place
before the sparks and ember glows
set their marks in the distance.

a sound arose from the corners
of the universe
and echoed
with a sun’s laugh of approval

while luminous seeds flew from a nova,
floating outward
in waves of solar mirth,
and left an imprint of light and sound
set with the hand that created it.

Genesis is an ekphrastic poem, inspired by the artwork shown above, by R. S. Wesson.
