Genesis Islands

Galapagos, Ecuador

By Wayne Visser

Genesis islands, straddling Hades and Eden
Ancient follies forged in the fiery mists of time
Land of contortion between struggle and freedom
An ode to creation and its ebb-flowing rhyme
Puzzle of the Pacific, of cold blood and fire
A cauldron of species, our map of history
Giant tortoises tread with evolution’s desire
Our past leaves a trail, our future a mystery
Saludo! To Darwin and his unholy treason
