generation of God

Harvey S. Mozolak

God of Adam and his Abraham
sons Isaac and Jacob

the infinite
vesseled in a measure
that will hold
nine twists of the moon
carried like a jar from a well
whose depths cannot be plumbed
to the cupped ears of centuries
and epochal-empty hearts held
parched in waiting for a promise
hidden beyond hope
under the shadow of a tree
Mary loosens the rope
of her dress at the bulging
blessing growing within
the Most High placenta-pressed
pulled low by the gravity of our generations

God of Eve and her Sarah
daughters Rebekah and Rachael
