Aftermath

A Poem by Pete
"

Men are as innocent as the morning to the unsuspicious. - Thoreau

"
Image result for adam and eve

I'll see you again.
Bodies naked and mortality innocent.
Our outstretched arms reaching for forbidden fruit.
Hands trembling and knees growing weak.
Hearts will bleed and souls will speak.
We'll clutch faith and turn away.
Our mouths kissing truth as love we pray.
Living to taste yet another day ...

Author's Note

Pete
"Birds do not sing in caves, nor do doves cherish their innocence in dovecots. Through our own recovered innocence we discern the innocence of our neighbors. To the innocent there are neither cherubim nor angels." - Thoreau

Pete! Damn! You could write just from that image. What a painting in few words.

We never lose that yearning, though we might suppress it time to time. And, who’s the initiator here? Does he know where that snake is? How close it is to...? And what about the two lions, which she seems to conceal with her body. So much danger when man’s on his back. But, what a view! And touch!

Good to see and read something different here, and still with Thoreau in the wind. :)

Brevity speaks volumes. I do not know why, but that fishing term, "catch and release" came to mind when I finished reading. I bow to you sir and say, "encore!"

Amazing quote, painting and poetry my friend, a veritable smorgasbord of art. This has that old time romantic lilt to it, playing on the heart and caressing the mind. Wonderful piece.

I don't typically see this type of genre from you, so forgive me if my attention is diverted from your words - if only momentarily. ; ) Much enjoyed this one, Pete.
