The Birth of Chronos

God
   God is
      ...
        ...
          ...
not God stirs within God
God shines forth
   begetting
   emanating
      the Word
         Changer
God feels within
   birthing
   enlightening
      Wisdom
         Orderer
Wisdom first born
The Word only begotten

The Word,
   Logos, begotten of God
   emanation of God
   substance of God,
      but not of God
Wisdom,
   Sophia, Athene, Phota, Radiant Light
   utterly different
   not God, but eternally vibrating
Together, but alone
   just the two of them
   God's changing and
   God's ordering
    begotten and first born
   God's creativity

Alone with God
   God alone with them --
   Eternal and eternally
     floating in the still void of God

The Eternal Unchanging
   God, creator
   Embracing
     the Only Begotten
     the Only Born
The Eternal All
   Stasis
   Sophia, Phota dims
     no longer Radiant
     vibrating long
   Logos, Word silent
     somnialescent
     dulled.

The still void sighs, "Let there be love."
The void no-void changed
Sophia and Logos interleave
Logos awakens
   and gives voice to God
   "Let there be change.
    Let there be newness."
And the Word returns to Sophia
   reverbating in Wisdom
   and she conceives fœtus
Logos encounters twins same not-same
   one destined to be real on the horizon
   one destined to be imaginary on the vertical


God changed,
   Eternally Changing

Sophia
   timeless light
   massless light
   wave on wave
   particle among particles
birthed time and space
  always velocitous,
   one united
   created of God
   other than God
   finite, temporary
   beginning and ending
floating in Phota's sea,
   awash in timeless light
   mortal, but floating in Eternity's ocean
   never to cross light's c
one twin below c
one twin above c
never to meet.
