Gardens Of Delight

Seeds planted in the nurturing earth,

with water and sunlight, will grow.

Tended with loving handiwork,

they spout, bloom, and soon you sow;

Our hearts are these seeds.

Intertwined by their roots,

they bare sweet fruits,

that satisfy our hunger, our needs.

In the garden,  known as Eden,

where we used to dwell.

Those fruits were forbidden,

not to be picked from their vines.

But we had to rebel,

curious and hungry, we had other designs.

Once we took that first bite,

we discovered the delight.

That sin , did us in,

cast out, exiles to  roam;

refugees without a home.

But that fruit was too enticing, to inviting,

so we multiplied and flourished,

our appetites nourished.

Season after season, we tilled,

harvesting bounties until we were filled.

Gardens of delight, how we crave,

we are master, we are slave.

    1. Hi Drem, Thanks,I believe I did see it when looking for images. I already have another one similar to this, called Eve’s Place. I think, that one kid of went off in a different direction midway through.It could have been two poems, but I had already written this one. It’s funny because I am not a religious person whatsoever, but I find this story to be inspiring on so many non-religious levels.

      1. One doesn’t have to be religious to appreciate beautiful artistic expression ❤
        I happen to be religious and it helps me imagine the stories I read.
