If God was a Man, How'd He Birth the Universe?

Divine Revelation

He labored for six days
to give birth to a naked earth
from barren womb.

Life was born
through pregnant thoughts
and fertile land.

He created everything
by speaking it
into existence.

A newborn cradled
on the axis of His arms
is lulled into slumber.

The babe awakes in tears
because she is aching
to fill her hunger.

But rations are depleted,
an infant’s appetite
left her malnourished.

She fed from the world
not from the one
who formed it into being.
