A Deferential Specter of Beginning Life with a Laugh

Life began in a bridge,
a grain of a blade, a wisp,
of billowy breath, so thin,
that it peeled off an archaic fin.
Then shouldered red clay, and a gasp!
As new lungs filtered air in.

In a spin, barged on land with new feet,
locked straight, circumspected, reflected:
that Homo Erected seemed sweet!
