Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
The Speed of Creation by Raymond A. Foss
The slow calving of a glacier,
the sudden eruption of a once dormant volcano
The birth of a rainbow at the end of rain,
the crawl of a land tortoise across the parched earth

The slide of a snail, the dive of a hawk
The sprint of a cheetah, a light year
The speed of sound, the pounce of a leopard,
The stride of a giraffe, the slither of a snake
The growing of a sequoia, the breaking of bread

A hummingbird in flight,
the birthing of a star
The beating of a heart,
the rising of a cicada

The discovery of the coelacanth
the pace of extinction.
The growth of a wildfire,
the dawning of a new day.
The crack of lightening,
a human life and eternity.
These are the speeds of creation.
