Eve - Poem by Jacqui Broad

I wake up
in the
garden of Eden.
I am rich:
dew shines like diamonds
on the lushious grass.
The world so undisturbed,
what am I doing here?
I walk from tree to tree,
picking fruit of my choice.
The Lord is very generous.
Birds fly above,
singing sweet songs
of freedom and peace.
I am alone,
but aware
of watching eyes.
will kill me,
and I'm waiting.

    Hmm, very interesting. I like the expression of internal turmoil here, though I do encourage the exploitation of temptation. To take what one wants, is the greatest victory, so long no one gets hurt! Lovely writing. (Report)Reply

    It's a nice poem, excellent write, ,
    But always there's a vulpine serpent, waiting for entice us to erode the forbidden fruit...
