To Girl with the Hazel Eyes: The Big Bang

In the Beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

Book of Genesis, Verse 1 & 2

 

With the Big Bang our universe came into existence, it was the start to an end, the start of life, a miracle of god, heavens and earth came into being, but it was all dark with no certain tomorrow, till god decided to shed some light and the Sun and the Moon came into being. And in seven good days god created life as we know it. All it took was a spark, a spark under the perfect conditions and a beautiful masterpiece was painted by god, with all the happiness and the flowers, all the sorrows and the thorns, the cold and the moon, the warmth and the sun, with all the emotions, human beings and the food, it was like a rainbow with seven different colors making a beautiful gradient from Violet to Red.

With the heavens conspiring, under the rainy night, with the moon almost at its peak, a new day was about to start, I experienced my Big Bang, the timing, the weather, the company, the absolute right conditions, with no malice in my heart, I met her, the girl with the hazel eyes. Most people will say they experienced lighting, well I sensed a calm sea, a sea which was yet to see some light but even the earth was formless, empty and dark in the beginning. Her eyes, with a sense of notoriousness fluttering time and again, trying to hide a sea of memories, memories of the flowers and the thorns. I could not stop thinking about those eyes, eyes which were playing hide and seek with her hair, Oh! Her hair, like the waves of a stirred up ocean, the curls could tangle your vision, like a labyrinth, very hard to escape.

Well, the voice was not one of the girl or ladylike, but the severity in that voice made me think twice about what and how I wanted to convey my messages. It was a voice, you could tell by listening to it, and that there was a shriek hidden somewhere, a voice waiting to be heard. Well I have a very faint memory of that voice now, what I can recall is that it made the anxiety in me go numb, like the dead sea itself, like I was floating on water, being absolutely careless, because I knew I wouldn’t drown in this sea, Then. As the two souls started to speak their mind, it was becoming quite clear, that the conspiracy had been successful. I was looped, like dread locked, in her hair. It was just like the heavens and earth in the beginning, dark, empty and formless.

As the night grew older it was time for the new day to step up, because god decided to shed some light, and then the encounter of the two souls ended with the Sun rays setting the two on their own paths.

 

 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

                      Book of Genesis, Verse 3, 4 and 5
