Stars like Dice

Stars scattered

She picked the stars up like dice and threw them once and threw twice. Till they were scattered in the skies, an amazing mix to beguile the eye.

Then colouring a deep indigo she made a stunning backdrop for the stars to show. There was such a stunning light and she decided to call it night.

She spread her arms out far and wide and defied any soul to reach the other side. All day she played at this and every now an then she would ignite a sun with just a kiss.

Galaxy after Galaxy she set out within  her being. She was unsure if she was travelling to, or fleeing. Then she had a mad idea, made a planet green and blue and planted the seed for me and you.

Eventually she got bored and looked for some new employment she made oceans and land and all of that was fine and grand. But as she was growing tired she made something less inspired. From within her tired mind she created mankind.

    What an interesting perspective on the origins of the universe. A creative, yet in conclusion somewhat cynical, description of nature and life. I sense a certain despair in the final lines, as if mankind has disappointed the narrator and failed to love up to the other great inventions. A thought provoking and creative read. Good work, Willow
