In The Beginning

In the Beginning

a word storm swirls
about me
i run
arms outstretched
hands clasped
forming a sort of circle
to catch the letters as they fall
in the beginning
there was communication
and communication
was the way
grunts thumps
hoots cackles
smoke signals
drumbeats
and after that
The Word
spoken written
sung hollered
and whispered
expression of
the personal
carries a heavy heavy
price to be paid
but now
and now
silence
gun smoke
gasoline fueled blazes
red is the color
of the rain
words are the weapons
of weapons
in the beginning
there was communication
and communication
was good
battles could be settled
marriages arranged
blessings bestowed
upon the blessed
but now
and now
the silence is
too loud
to be heard
