A Creation Story Retold

When skies on high were not yet named

Nor earth below defined in voice,

Thoughts, the first ones, their perceivers

And Creativity, who ordered them,

Mixed their recollects together,

But had not formed types, nor discovered patterns;

When as yet no explanation was conceived,

Nor metaphors advanced, nor purposes pronounced,

Then gods emerged in consciousness.


Derived from the Babylonian Epic of Creation – Enuma Elish 

(Written somewhere between 1800 and 1100 BCE.)
