Sun Egg

by Vladimir Kush

In the beginning,
parched lands cracked.
Earth dehydrated.
Then, a smoky sky 
darkened to black
soot, shot streams
of water that filled

cracks, and spilled
over the land. Earth lay
under water, no longer visible.

An unwieldy egg drifted
across the sky, and sank
to earth. The egg looked
around, decided it was
a good place to hatch.
After a loud rumble, the egg broke
in two. Sunbeams held
in the interior streaked
through the heavens, scattering
gray clouds that disintegrated.
People and land reappeared.
A lesson was learned. Too much
of one vision does not make
for a viable vista. The pickle
lay undisturbed in its rowboat.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
