Creating Life

The Creation Prometheus and Man
What they did was maybe reprehensible.
but, the need to feed their ego satiated
the dye was cast.
In a whir of obvious mechanics and
other unscrupulous noise
all rendered in the blink of an eye
with one quick flick and twist of the wrist
the distant curtains of clouds
were scattered, rent asunder
in marvel at their latest
(a fly on the wall)
can only watch and scan the
prize my insect eyes
could comprehend.
(like protected skin)
the painted gild began to shed
its outer molded wax

there on the plinth stood

  1. Wow! I am always impressed when a poet can create a coherent piece from so many disparate prompts, and you did it. Well done.

  2. This is beautiful 🙂 Amazing how you wove in all those words in such a way that they flowed along effortlessly!

  3. Great concept. I love the idea of an insect being there to see man being created, and thinking it was “maybe reprehensible”.


  4. Just super on all counts. I am always impressed when people use prompts well as it seems to escape me. Guess my Muse is shouting too loudly. Lovely poem and well written. Hugs, pat

  5. Well written take on the Prometheus myth, and great use of the wordle words. I liked the fly on the wall too. 🙂

  6. Oh I really like this! What a wonderful use of the wordle words, to fashion them into such an imaginative piece! Well done, I loved it. 🙂

  7. A very interesting juxtaposition of imagery with mythology. And yet. And yet a poem, like man, emerges. Well done!

  8. I like your creativity and the fly on the wall.
    Just imagine how different the world would be if we could see and hear everything!

  9. Great take on creation. I like the lore you used to bring man to life and the (a fly on the wall) line was a wonderful touch.

  10. you spin the scene very well, the perspective of the fly is a nice touch as well, you craft this very well…

  11. Your descriptive words here tell a story and give a vivid picture to what and how it might have been. Well done, Bren.
