Back to the Days of Creation--By Lanette Kissel--United States

Back to the Days of Creation

I wish I could go back to the days of creation,
when there was nothing but the black void of night.
God desired something that would shine through the darkness.
Then God spoke the command, “Let there be light.”

I wish I could go back to the days of creation,
when God formulated a plan for the birth
of the creatures to dwell in the land and sea,
the variety of species that would populate His earth.

I wish I could go back to the days of creation,
when God was conceiving and forming His plan,
when He desired a likeness in His own image.
Then He formed and created the first man.

I wish I could go back to the days of creation,
back to a much simpler day and time,
when man walked with God in a garden
and peace and harmony reigned sublime.

  4. Lanette, I absolutely loved your poem. Contemplating with you the desire to go back in time to a garden place where there ruled peace and harmony sublime, is really a desire of all who seek the peace that only the Lord can give. I often catch glimpses of that peace and feel so blessed to have those moments as a guiding light to keep me on the straight and narrow. Thank you for sharing your wonderful poem and talent.
    Love, Charlene
