we had wings

This is an exceptional philosophical poem that is unique and bold. It gives a different view of the story of Eve, and gives it wings, blessings, and joy. Thank you Holly for a beautiful view of a time when we had wings.

House of Heart

Then, wisdom grew from fruit

and  time was a seedling.

All creatures spoke the same,

hymns of bats, the breath of horses.

We were winged and freedom

was etched on the soles of our feet.

Pathways in the earth and sky were known,

not charted.

Now we step naked into the blazing sun.

Bare  ourselves  to golden rivers and the

awesome tidal thunder.

Dali and The Garden of Eden

    1. Kim, As soon as I read Holly’s poem, I was blown away. It is one of the most creative, intuitive, brilliant, and beautiful works of written art, I have ever read. It surely will make people think out of their comfort zone. I ask myself…what if? Karen 🙂

      1. Kim, I love to come across words that startle and surprise me, and the meaning behind the words is often breath-taking. I am so thrilled that you had the same response as I did. It is a fantastic poem, that rings true. Karen 🙂
