Then God said, "Let there be Light
And there was Light
And God saw that the Light was good
And God separated the Light from the darkness
God called the Light..day
And the darkness he called.. night
And there was evening
And there was morning
The first day
That's taken from Genesis
Chapter one, verses three thru five
Shazzam
God speaks the word "Light
And suddenly out in the night
There…I AM
Wave the magic wand
Nothing magical about "Light
Ain't that right
Hidden in the darkness
Surrounded by the night
Shadows won't appear
Til you cast a little light
Energy blocked by matter
Always gets around
Over, under, up, down
Much like that sonic "Boom
Light surges as pure energy
In waves your eye can't see
Across the frozen universe
Bringing blessing or perhaps… curse
A long time ago as a young man
Returning from the horrors
Of the war in Vietnam
Feeling worn-out, used up
turned off, shamed
Old as the Appalachian mountains
Out of which I came
In that beat up state of mind
I went lookin' for truth
Of a certain kind
I went lookin' for God
If there was such a thing
I had some big questions
To ask of that King
In my South Boston commune
After three sleepless nights
Jonathan Edwards and I
Got in a ..big fight
Exiled among natives
In frontier Stockbridge
He'd slipped me some info
That went in like a shiv
Finished up my paper
And finally relaxed
Set myself down
When it hit like an ax
Backward I fell head over heels
Scuba diving off my boat
Down towards the keel
Down through the seaweeds
Of my own DNA
Like Alice in Wonderland
Down all the way
Gave a wave to my parents
And grandparents alike
Back thru my ancestors
I sailed like a kite
Wheels turned around me
For the very first time
First fire made glass
From sand so fine
I 'm thinking I must have been
Out of my mind
On this trip of a lifetime
Thru my species and more
My DNA churned
Like never before
We surged thru the salt seas
Floated free on the breeze
Crawled up primal beaches
On our fins and our knees
My DNA squirmed
From the deeps to the damps
From ocean's far reaches
Up into the swamps
Up thru the jungles
To Mountains so high
If I weren't in the deserts
I 'd be up in the sky
Or under three miles
Of glacial ice waste
Never stopping to think
But getting' a taste
Of ancient flora and fauna
In permafrost encased
Waterworld turned Gasland
Explosively cast land
Upwards and outwards
Materially blast land
Into the vastness
Of the frozen "Out There
Faster and faster
Towards the Great Bear
Waves of pure energy
Accelerating outward
At speeds unimaginable
Onwards and upward
And then…Something…happened
Something quite extraordinary
It is the reason why
I'm telling you this story
A conversion of sorts
When Energy meets Matter
The breath of the universe
Which makes all things scatter
Then come together again
Amazing to say, it's as neat as a pin
Amazing to say, it's always been
Behind all this chaos, confusion and chatter
Is a Caring Intelligence
That gathers the tatters
Forging creation
From energy and matter
It was then that I knew
Without any doubt
That in the beginning
LOVE was about
Forming and shaping
The world that we know
Creating, inflating
Blow by blow
Nothing exists
That was not formed by this LOVE
Benevolent care
Coming down from above
With this treasure inside me
I suddenly woke up
I surfaced, breathed deeply
Got back in the boat
Walked into the Light
Of a South Boston morn
Like for the first time
I'd ever been born
Wow...how different all seemed
To my newly born eye
How light and how bright
Almost felt I could fly
I knew every tree, every bird, every ant
All there for a reason, all life extant
Nothing was random
All was design
Of a loving Creator
Who was there all the time
It was like... Shazzam
I AM, you are, we can…be
Happy, known, loved and free
