God Is Dancing

God sang and danced as He created everything

He sang and danced and whooped and wailed

A song of densest enunciation,

He sang and danced and clapped his chapped hands

And the lights came on

He sang and whistled and wreathed the winds with His fingers

For life to begin.


The earth formed from a thickening of his song, mixed with air,

mixed with a passion only Him could summon.

He sang and stamped his feet on the mudden earth

And the dust that rose,

Gelled with the rhyme-packed spittle flying from his singing lips

To form man.


God sang and sang, and goes on singing

He dances about, His flighty feet whizzing on the ether;

When the song hits the high notes, new universes form

And He sees it and claps with kidlike attention

And the lights come on – stars flash on.

God has been singing and dancing since the first ever second,

He’s been gliding through dark matter,

Reaching the high notes and seeding universes at every corner

Universes containing the robustness of his glee, which keeps expanding;

God is singing and dancing and creating and forming

We are His song, we are music – rhythm, pitch, and encore.

Whatever note your soul echoes,

A report of it is heard in the infinite multiverses –

Where an equivalent note of you sounds –

Listen to yourself, Music.

God sings, dances, creates, forms

As he goes on his merry way –


Your God will rejoice over you with joy…he will rejoice over you with singing’

Zeph 3:17

    Really interesting and new.
    Lemme add my line lol
    ” God sang and danced the day I was born……he even hosted a feist celebrating the life of an angel.”

      YES!! @ufuomaotebele, maybe I can even make it rhyme: here goes nothing

      God sang and danced the day you were born
      He placed in each of your eyes a miniature sun
      And in her heart he ignited a glorious dawn
      He wrote into your story, greatness as the bourne
      And the attires of tears and sorrow, off you, God shorn
      Then the best family he could ever form,
      He placed you in, so his will for you, they could perform!

      Lol. Thanks for the gladful comment. Thanks.
