Please join me in congratulating this week's #IndiePoetryPlease Contest Winner: Angel Santos (@instarflights65), and his winning entry – Anthropos 🏆
In the beginning Earth was already there darkness parted the deepest voids water split as plenty of blues still cuddling us up within its colloidal dreamful state. Light shone, brightly slashing out the dark, calling it night while mountains were kissed by the sea and fruit was born from the ground’s womb a beginning without witnesses. In the beginning, you were nanometers smaller than a dew drop hanging between heaven and earth didn’t know what you were. Just being, living, your insides spun with perfection owning all this even in your sleep. You landed softly as a bubble with the gift of breath moving within the minus infinite mother and father of all that crawls. In the beginning, you opened your eyes and found a world grabbed the sand sister of your cells stood on your feet searched for the Sun dived into water rose and felt the dirt eternally contemplated the horizon breathed in and realized, as you looked above. In the beginning, everything said: let there be Love.
