Posts Tagged ‘Forbidden truth’

After the start of the year I started in an on line poetry class.  It has been a challenge for me to stretch beyond what I normally write and to find the Divine in each subject.  The class is titled: The Study of Myth.  This poem is from one of the earlier classes that included the story of Adam and Eve.  So this is my version of Adam and Eve.

adam and eve

Succulent fruit hanging on the vine.

Humans and animals living in

harmony with the Divine.

Beauty of the creating Lord

flourishes in blooms and grasses

across the garden floor.

Adam and Eve strolling among the leaves,

lives’ a life of grace and easy.

Man and women created to celebrate

the harmony and joy of this garden so great,

can pet the lions and play with the elephants,

and live in a world without barriers or fence.

A garden of love for animals, insects, plants and trees.

A love of one another and the Energy Source

which created all they were and all they see.

Through the choice and thoughts they made,

the Universe gave them the ability to co-create.

Universal Law a gift from God,

says it is your thoughts that create the life

and feelings you procreate.

In contemplation of wanting more

Adam and Eve ventured to the forbidden tree

protected by a serpent of truth.

Eve asked, “What is it you protect in this tree?”

Slithering in silence the snake left his perch,

to look the couple in the eye,

to see what questions

the souls were hiding inside.

As he looked he saw the souls trying to re-align,

Ego gaining strength,

pulling tight the choice line.

“One choice can send your world in a spin,”

is what this serpent said to them.

“It is our right to know…what it is this tree does grow?”

Responded Eve.

The serpent moved closer to see what Adam didn’t show,

“Why are you so silent and not asking to know?”

Asked the snake then hissed and moved away slow.

“It is my partner’s plight to see the truth in a different light,

and there is no one else for me to love so joyously.”

“Ahhh,” said the serpent,

“A couple so free, in a garden of bliss,

so eager to separate

from the Divine that created all of this.

Yes, it is your choice to taste the fruit.

And, I will tell you it is your choice that

grows the Garden of Eden

or creates a world of fears and hate.

So use your thoughts wisely…

For they will quickly procreate.”

The serpent slide from the tree

to reveal the lush fruit.

In last words he said,

“You have received the message from your Creator,

Who has given you this freedom to choose.

And always, God will sit and wait for you,

Receiving you back regardless of what you think and do.

In re-alignment you will find the Garden of Eden is still divine.”

Further from the tree he slid,

and one last time looked back to see

the forms of Adam and Eve lose their radiant light

as they bite the fruit from the forbidden tree.

It did not take long for the ego to take hold

and the life of contrast ignite

into a world of illusions and fright.
