Where the text goes 2

No words for years
decades, no statement
no explanation the texts
left behind for years
decades, destroyed, buried
transmitted by mouth
imperfectly, parts omitted
forgotten, seeping
into the ground,
spilled blood.

The winds blows foe years,
decades, eons, the texts
forgotten, a few locked
in cupboards and chests,
covered with dust, waiting
for light.

One day

the sun rises.

We watched 'Noah' the other night.... many a bit of 'off' Bible there, but a God story nonetheless. We marveled at a man who could walk with God when there was no word and no one else.
