Creation Story – Ann Christine Tabaka


Tell me a tale

How the world began

How earth was born

Long before man


Each culture has

Its creation story

A myth or song

Filled with glory


A fiery battle

In the heavens above

Or an act of valor

Bestowed with love


A giant tortoise

On his back the earth

A star-woman

To life gives birth


The trickster raven

And sun gods

Juggling planets

Against all odds


The epic sagas

Of ancient ones

Passed on in fable

From fathers to sons


As images form

Before my eyes

Filled with wonder

Worlds crystallize
