The Creation of Adam

The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo Buonarroti 

The breath of God
That spoke swirling galaxies
And a myriad of stars
into the vast array of heaven,
breaths life into a form of dust
And infuses him with the Divine Spark.

The hand of God
Touching the hand of man
The angels watch with bated breath
As the Father of Heaven
Gives life to Adam, the father of earth

The image of God
The crowning achievement of creation
Gazing at his creator with trust and peace.
Unmarred and unashamed.
Looking at the face of God

With love
