‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’
(John’s Gospel, 1: 1)
God is the Word
for the beginning
for what began the beginning
for what was at the beginning
and what has been beginning ever since.
God is the Word
for what is
and why it is
and how it is.
All words are in the one Word,
all words are in the one breath,
all breaths are in the one breath
that has breathed since the beginning.
And the first breath
was the first word at the beginning,
as our first breath was our first word
at our beginning,
and the Word was God.
