Paradise Lost

Before the days when man first sinned
Angels traveled upon the wind
Everything magic shone in the night
Fairies fluttered, wings shining bright

Eve was perfect with long flowing hair
Sensuous body, delightfuly bare
Adam's body strong, he was a sight
They played by day and made love at night

Everything perfect, living in the trees
Yet trouble called upon a gentle breeze
The serpent said taste, this fruit so grand
Eve so entranced, she ate from his hand

She saved fruit for Adam, he took a bite
The garden went dark, no more magic light

A sonnet in The Wind Contest.

    Makes me wonder how just two people could cause so much trouble lol. This is a striking piece Rick, a familiar story but one of the best writes on it I've read. Take care, Richard

    Intense! Well told story here. This is why I eat meat & potatoes! Fruits & Veggies (aka rabbit food) will ruin humanity. ;-)
