What the world waits for
A miracle    new Eden
A great revival
An influx of innocence
Like a great enchanting wave

Like starting over
Adam and eve    the tree    snake
Virgin nakedness
Dark clouds give way to blue sky
And they happily remain

I just finished Dean Koontz’s “Breathless.”

There is so much a new Eden could replace. Your verse gives much to think about Daver. I enjoyed my friend.

This sure wasn't the "turnover" that I was expecting but I sure do like it just the same! Very thought provoking and I like how you give a different meaning for it-- sometimes yup, makes me wonder why we can't all return to innocence? I think I wrote a poem about this ones, but yours is more interesting to read :) & ok, now I have to try reading Dean Koontz again, hmm I read only 1 of his books, oh shucks I can't remember the title...

Dear Daver, thanks for your comments on "War and Peace." I'm glad you saw the spinning top as that was my intention. Thank you, dear friend. Love, Carolyn

A beauty Daver; hope and peace would surely chase away the snake! Oh, we need some rain also. Yesterday I let the hose run on the front lawn for a bit....a robin swooped down (I thought it had seen a worm), but it kept drinking & dunking itself in a small pool. Eden would be lush and green, yes? Hope all's going super well with you! Love, Mikki

Sounds all real nice, except the snake. Maybe we can do without the snake! And if the snake must be present, let's hope Adam and Eve kick him out, or shut him up for good. :) Then, maybe, maybe, there's hope for peace, hey? Sounds likke Dean Koontz's book inspired you. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your kind comments on my poem. Caroline.

Awesome, dear friend. Don't you wish we actually could see the human race start over, but knowing the consequences that we see in today's world. That must have been quite a novel by Koontz and this is one incredible poem. Love you, Carolyn
