Paradise

Are we still in Eden?
I see trees
apples
and a snake
But something is different
I feel
banished
so much pain
This can’t be paradise
 
Yet I feel
grass
between my toes
aware
The Great What Is
still is
The sun
keeps coming
up each day
warm
on my face
I am awake
innocent
again
but not
naive
 
Eve …
why?
You need not
answer
to me
I now see
you
an apple
a snake
a bite
Sweet?
Bitter?
No
can’t go back
 
I see you
now
for what
you are
you
here
with me
Are you happy?
Can you be?
Can I help?
I don’t know
anymore
but I see
you
there
alone
(not quite)
and I want …
 
This moment
and this
and this …
You are
a garden
lush
wild
beautiful
Let go
now
What is
is
so …
be
