The Three Kingdoms

The Three Kingdoms

Dark

There was once a blind man that lived in the dark.
For years on end, he lived in darkness and silence, passive and thoughtful,
Creating sounds for the objects his limbs could touch.
He touched a surface and called it “table”.
He felt the blood of life and called it “water”.
In time, and quickly, he became aware of feeling: a living thing.
An idea. Infinite, it brought form to the formless.
He called it “sight”.

Light

There was once a mute woman that died in the light.
For a moment, all was white, full, vibrant; alive.
She had created ideas for all the objects she could feel but not say.
She saw water and thought it “art”.
She heard music and thought it “love”.
When she died, she woke up and said, “At last I can speak.”

Elsewhere

There were once a man and a woman that lived and died in a garden.
There was once a god who was a circle.
The circle existed and ceased, was and was not
As alpha and omega, beginning and end.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
The clouds roll through space and shower the sky with stars.
