All the Beginnings of Everything

I want to be the light at the very beginning,

when shadows steal away,

but still

remain in waiting.

            I want to be the

            dawn

            of

            man,

            beneath the sun,

            and

            in the sand.

            I want to be the

            first taste of

            blood,

            first fire,

            first ice-age,

            and the

            first

            flood.

            I want to be

            Mother

            of lunar eclipse,

            of black holes

            and comets.

            End

            of words

            freed

            from your lips.

            Last kiss.

            Final breath.

I want to be the dark at the very beginning,

when lights fade away,

but still

remain in waiting.

I want to be

All the

beginnings

of

everything.
