Eve's Last Journal Entry

How the wind whispers to the weeping willows.
Nearby the lark sings her song of sweetness
And the walnuts and apricots drop onto 
The leafy ground.  The man sits with his muscles
Glistening in the sea’s mists.  He stares upward
Toward where the emerald seas meet the blue skies.
Today I touched and tasted the bark 
Of the cinnamon tree.  The lioness reached out
To pat at me as I passed by, then rolled over 
For a belly rub. I nearly stepped on 
That little green snake curled up
Under the apple tree, the bounty 
Of the mother earth. The man misses
So much.  I think he needs his freedom.
I see it in his eyes. I like the sound
Of the word, full and round,  freedom.
Silly little snake basking in the sun
Under that tree.  Those bright red
Apples. Tonight with the cinnamon
I found, maybe I’ll make the man
An apple pie.....

    Oh I am glad I found you and this lovely gem. I am with Andrea. I would have expected to have found this as a winner. So apple pie goes way back to Eve. She probably had a solar oven of sorts. I am sure she came with instincts much stronger than ours. Thank you for your lovely words on my apple pie offering. Love,Joyce

    oh, I just figured it out. YOu never wrote it to a particular Adam. That is what happened!

    gosh, I just dont' get it. Already I have seen two poems of yours which did not appear on winner's lists. I am sure i read all the winners for Eve and for Adam. How could this one not make it?? It's awesome. Another 7 for ya!!

    This has the wit and the twist of the best Twilight zone episodes. Good job! You are very kind. With this, you should be very proud! Gerard.
