In the Beginning~by ‎Annie Johnson‎


 

 

In the Beginning

Image may contain: 1 person

I loved you when the earth was flat;
People in love were the only ones
Who didn’t fall off the edge, tumbling,
Into the endless blue void of forever.
The strong love, of the people who stayed glued
To the earth, and to its forests and its seas,
Started filling out the planet with their love.
Their love-breath created infinite space;
More water, higher mountains and denser forests –
The planet grew outward to form a huge ball.
Love became gravity, pinning feet to the ground
And love born over and over flew with the birds
And swam in the sea with mammoth whales
And climbed the highest mountains to touch the sky.
Just think, I knew you when the earth was flat
And our love helped to make it full and round;
Made it twirl in the air like a ball on a string.
Now you know, love makes the world go ‘round.
