I ponder…the origin of the universe

It fascinates me to know how mankind

Has had complex questions on its mind

From time immemorial- our ancestors wondered about

The origin of the universe, of life, without

Having the scientific tools we now possess

But boundless imagination they could access

Vividly imagined, with myriad versions

Passed down centuries through oral traditions

I wonder how those ancient women and men

Exercised their imagination, staring at the heavens..


In the Vedic tradition, first there was darkness everywhere

Then the self-manifested Being became aware

Created primordial waters, established seed of creation

Into the Golden Womb underwent the seed transformation

The Being (consciousness) entered the womb (of light)

The universe began, dispelling the darkness of night


For Greeks, the cosmic Orphic egg gave birth

To the deity Phanes, the egg split to create heaven and earth

Phanes gave rise to all other gods and the universe began

To function as intended, for the gods and man


The Big Bang theory is widely accepted as true

Based on scientific evidence, it does seem to

Be an explanation plausible, but no one witnessed

The beginning of the universe, we remain as obsessed

With exploring our origins as our ancestors had been

We use science and imagination to create a scenario unseen..
