Mother Of All Beings

Even Song

(The self-begotten deity)

 The steadfast Earth shuddered
 roaring fires ran over heavens
 in tears & howling embodied
 a female form: Mother of all beings

 Like a faint shadow she rose from the ground
 trembling & pale like a new-born child
 beneath her feet a vast, unprolific ground
 above her head the indefinite space

 For ages she wandered in the forsaken wilderness
 searching for life-forms
 She found nothing but a dire emptiness
 a soul-shuddering Vacuum

 Whirlwinds of sulphurous smoke
 torrents of lava, vapour & clouds
 terrible thunders tore the mantle of Earth
 unquenchable fires consumed the ground

 Her lamenting voice wept upon the void
 but there were no one to hear her
 She was alone in a world of inertia
 divided by tears & sorrows 

 From the vast deluge of her tears
 an unfathomable ocean rose
 An ocean teemed with strange organism
 and creatures bred in sorrow

 Various forms of being crawled out from the sea
 and mustard around the great Mother
 And she rejoiced beholding her daughters & sons
 and gave them the Earth & the Skies to conquer
