Big bang

With the right instruments they say they can hear
echoes of the big bang resonating through the universe,
the low hum of light, the thrum of mass and gravity,
the music of attraction and expansion
in everything, the steady noise of being.

If you listen, quiet as an octopus,
you can hear echoes of the whisper
calling forth light from imagination,
worlds that have never been silent since,

and if you listen stone-deep, moon-still,
in everything, solid as iron in everything,
holy and given, you can hear the silence
that came before it. And in that silence
the pure hope of God.
