Alpha and Omega

Prompt Day #344: Begin with a woman…and end with a man


Alpha and Omega


It begins with a woman

In the dark, waiting

Soft mountains, a fertile delta

Gaia quaking

Power sleeps

Nestled between pillars of flesh

A biblical evil; temptress

Ancient, the mother of all life

A primordial sea secreted within

Honey glistened lips

A ship, firm and steady

Sets out in search of land to conquer

Always invading, seeking, digging

Assuming that sinking a flag into territory

Means ownership, control

The victim of original sin

Relegated to worker bee

Crawling from the soup of evolution

With a new appendage

Standing erect

“I am the alpha and omega”

The beginning and the end
