The Mystery of Creation

Most religions assume a creation, but few
Ask why: they have a creation mythology
Because this present existence must be
Extrapolated from an origin.

But why? given God exists, does God create,
Then, how? - would yield a surer scheme: God
Cannot create at a given point that would be
In eternity an impossibility.

Creation ultimately cannot be but that
It is the act to the manifestation of what
Already exists one with God’s eternal being,
Removing the difficulty of a beginning.

And what exists is God’s articulation
Of God, as form is of context; and from
This comprehension a divine affection
For manifestation out of nothingness.

But know this: in God is God fully manifest,
And from all eternity, creation cannot affect,
And ultimately must yield to nothingness
Save in the affection that manifests the eternal.
