Adam

by
 High above he stands, beside the many
saintly figures fronting the cathedral's
gothic tympanum, close by the window
called the rose, and looks astonished at his

own deification which placed him there.
Erect and proud he smiles, and quite enjoys this feat of his survival, willed by choice.
As labourer in the fields he made his start and through his efforts brought to full fruition the garden God named Eden.
But where was the hidden path that led to the New Earth? God would not listen to his endless pleas.
Instead, He threatened him that he shall die.
Yet Adam stood his ground: Eve shall give birth.
