(1) Beyond Eden

Rating: 2.8
Green leaves tap at my window like lost souls.
I trace their signatures upon the glass.
Dawn is only a few quatrains away.
I memorize the fragrance of spring rain.

It takes me back beyond Eden, my friends
Where Adam brushed the first tear from Eve's eye.
Stripped of their innocence, how could they know?
The last grief would be soothed by God himself.
Somewhere deep in the hills, a lyric bird

Somewhere deep in the hills, a lyric bird Sings of the poignancy of humanness. The ever freshness of that ancient sound Brings back the sun that shone aeons ago. ................... .................A beautiful stanza... I loved the way you wait for time to slip and dawn to come, the last stanza is a perfect ending, a perfect beginning I must say........A beautiful deep write...

Intermingled in Nature when the soul sings the timeless measures of love in different births divine music reverberates through them. Dear Sandra, your poetry is superb, it stands as a class apart.

Absolutely beautiful! What a unique moment. Adam and Eve have blown it but Adam's love compels him to tenderly wipe away Eve's tear. After the fall, they were still in it together and so are all of us.

Hi Sandra - evokes those times staddled between dark and dawn, when we sit alone waiting for the sands of time to run...minds wandering back through times lang syne, experience making sense of it all. The blessedness of imortal birdsong underlines the score perfectly. love Nomad
