Let there be marshes

Some say God spoke in Hebrew,
Yehi ‘or — “Let there be light.”
Others that God sang a tune
to separate day from night.
Still more claim it is math
that’s the language of creation,
translating all the way back
to the Big Bang explosion,
physics dictating the forces,
which have an effect on
everything from stars in their courses
to the flight of electrons.
Let us say God created all things,
including the graces in between.
