A glimpse of paradise

 Like Eve, she contemplates on the ripened fruit
 As she sits on the garden bench
 No serpents to beguile her with untruths
Just her curiosity to quench

 Behind her are the fruit laden trees
 Whose blossoms match the color of  her dress
 Perhaps she can hear the buzz of bees
 Or the melody of the wind rustling through the leaves

 With eyes downcast she takes a look
 As she reflects on the contents of her book
 She seems more absorbed by the fragrance of the tasty treat
 As a blossom falls softly at her feet
