My Name Is Nod


OF THE SEVERAL HUNDRED POEMS THAT I HAVE WRITTEN THROUGH THE YEARS THIS IS MY OWN PERSONAL FAVORITE.

This is a poem that is designed to make you think, to get you to maybe get the book of Genesis out for another look see. Maybe, if you are not good at world geography you might want to dig into some maps of the know world of about 5,000 years or so ago. I hope that you enjoy it, quite a bit of research went into making this poem be accurate.

Do you know me

Listen, does not the wind whisper

Do not the mountains echo my name?

How is it you do not know me

Did not the man Moses lay out the path to my door

For two of your human generations

The Valley of The Garden of God

Was my western door.

My Sister, Lake Urmia was fast a sleep

Within her no bounty ever found

As the West Gate of God’s Garden she guarded

Now she is but salty ground.

Did not my mountains rumble

And spew forth fire and rocks?

How is it you can not find me?

Can you not hear the ticking of the clock?

Many of your years ago now

One man came forth unto me

Spewed forth from the Garden of God

He came unto me, with a mark upon his head

So all my inhabitants would know

That whosoever dared touch him

Would also soon be dead.

The Garden has now so long been gone

It’s land like mine is scorched

The Face of God once again I seek

But when He does once again return

Will He echo my words to you

Child, how is it you do not know me?

  1. Dear Oldpoet…

    Your poem is magnificent.
    I would relate it to a sort of cosmological text, maybe also with shades of an epic story… Really, so nicely penned 🙂

    Best wishes, Aquileana 😉
